Linda Everson is an accomplished artist. We have included her bio below. This particular work, a Cobalt Blue Iceberg Glass Paperweight (3.75" long) I feel is one of her best creations. She has painted the most exquisite winter scene on this marvelous medium. Perfect subject selection for this cobalt blue iceberg glass paperweight. It is Signed "L. Everson" on the front and "Handpainted by L. Everson" on the underside.
In Very Good to Excellent Condition.
The following is an excerpt from the Artist's Statement:
"Because I am an avid outdoors person, bits and pieces of the landscape (roots, vines, trees, branches, tree bark markings) are juxtaposed in my artwork in a very abstract manner. I use natural textures and color as metaphors of death and rebirth, sun and moon, summer and winter, water and fire, sky and earth, seasons, and the time of day."
This creation uses the color and medium to so perfectly complement and, really, be part of the Winter Scene.
