I've had these framed glass paintings since I was thirteen years old (I'm now 24). My parents picked up one at at thrift store, and the other was being thrown away at their office. I always liked them and hung them in my bedroom. Two moves later, I rediscovered them in a box I never took to my new apartment with me. I painted the ugly dark brown frames black, and gave them new life! They now hang in my kitchen.

I would love to learn more about these paintings if anyone could help me identify them? Only one has a painted signature, and it is illegible. These pictures are glass squares, painted on from behind. The one with the pheasant and farm scenery is actually two pieces of layered glass. Is any one familiar with what this style of painting is called, or the artist? I would love to find out more about these pieces, as well as find more in a similar style.

Thank you for your help!

I have one too! Mine's a tree and a cabin in the woods, it came from a yard sale years ago-I've had it at least 25 years. I've wondered about it just like you. The reverse glass painting is so cool.
I love how yours look, and the paint job you did on the frames.
