There are so many uses for etched glass designs, and I really love the look. So when I wanted to do something extra special on a transom window in our house, I opted for faux etched vinyl to illustrate a memory from my childhood.
My dad was an avid fly fisherman. I have wonderful memories of being at our family cottage and listening from my bed as he came home with his limit of trout. Our cottage was close to the south branch of the Ausable River in Michigan, and fly fishing that river… well it didn’t get much better than that! Best of all was the times he took me fishing with him. Oh what fabulous memories!
I used Inkscape to design this scene to honor my dad. It depicts an evening of fishing with him.
