Alien blooms

Athletes talk about their "personal bests" - well, this is a personal best for me in painting glass. It has always scared the bejeebers out of me and I avoided it like the plague. Something happened while watching Carol Marine paint glass that dissipated my fear and it suddenly made sense to me. I think this is the first glass painting that I have truly liked.
You know how people see different things in paintings? My husband's first reaction was "cool little alien" (the top two flowers are the antennae and apparently there are two bug eyes in the bottom bloom).
