The Abstract Window Panel

This is a panel that I made in September for a lady that I have known for a few years.
We had lost contact until this past summer when we were working the farmers' market. She looked through the sample book and decided on this design. The original one was only 12" x 12". She wanted it to fit in the window frame which measured 38" x 23". Not impossible. I love a challenge and I got it.
If you would like to see the process (excluding the making of the pattern and cutting the glass) then click on the picture.

My Moonlit Avatar

I was watching television the other night when a commercial came on and my eyes started to wander, as usual. I looked behind me and saw the moonlight shining through this panel. Its one of my favorites because it was the first panel that I designed while taking a stained glass class many years ago.
This is also the window that gets the afternoon sun and when that happens, you can't even imagine the brilliance the glass around the mask.
I took several shots but this one turned out to be the best.
