Sarah Johnson & Rebecca Eicksteadt
Sisters Sarah Johnson and Rebecca Eicksteadt have always enjoyed creating art using many different mediums. Recently, Johnson began experimenting with a new medium—ink paint.
She started by painting the ink on glass from recycled picture frames and then tried using the medium on other items such as glass ornaments and stone pieces.
Finding painting with ink very freeing, Johnson shared the technique with her sister and they have been working primarily with this new medium ever since.
Both Johnson and Eicksteadt create abstract designs as well as nature-themed pieces. Paintings are done in reverse by removing the glass from a frame and applying the ink on the back of the glass.
Techniques include dripping, sponging, and dropping ink onto the glass. The white backing behind the glass helps the colors stand out.
There is a special magic in viewing their pieces in person, as the light hitting the glass is truly spectacular.
