I thought the background was too plain, so I added some colored frit. Then, I worked on filling in the seams of the glass on the hat and shirt. I added more white pieces which I hoped would give the piece more depth.
And here is the piece fused. I was so pleased with the outcome. When it was done, I took it home, washed it off to remove all the kiln dust, then wrapped it. We brought it to Jimmy that night for dinner and he was thrilled.
