this is wonderful Karen: it delights the eye, feeds the mind and calms the soul. and not kidding either:)

Susan, thanks! I get a lot of inspiration from stained glass ... I love the colors and the way the medium kind of compels a simplification of the subject matter.

Vincente, thank you ... I really appreciate your comment! I love color, and I used be very undisciplined about it, just going wild with not a very good result. I've learned quite a bit by studying artists like Susan Sarback and Hongnian Zhang.

Rahina, thank you for your lovely comment ... "calms the soul" is just what I was trying for with this one!
