This is a large stained glass panel of a pretty bird flying over the desert floor just as the rain begins to fall from the clouds above.
A woman living near the base of the San Tan Mountain in Queen Creek, Arizona asked me to design and make a pretty stained glass piece for her very bright, empty window.
So using the colors of the desert and inspiration from the pretty cactus and beautiful sunsets, I made this panel for her.
According to Jan, she waited nearly 2.5 years before she had a panel made. She knew she wanted something pretty but couldn't find the right person for the task.
Wouldn't you know - her husband now wants to sell the house and move back to the farm in Iowa. I guess he really misses the country life.
Shhh - don't tell her but I'm making a smaller, easy-to-take-with-her piece so she can remember the pretty saguaro cactus while looking over the fields of corn. This will be my little departing gift to her.
