Inspiration from BDP

I received a nice note via USPS a day or two ago from my friend, BDP. On the outside of the envelope was a pretty little colored doodle obviously drawn by B.

I took the envelope and sketched out a pattern to be transferred into a stained glass pattern.

Fortunately for me, I had just gone to the glass supply warehouse where I saw a very nice sheet of blue/green streaky glass that I simply had to buy. I didn't realize that by the time I got home, the need for that glass was sitting in my mailbox.

In the first photograph you can see the doodle done by BDP.

The second photograph shows the pattern drawn and glass cut ready to be ground.

The final photograph shows the completed piece all colored with black patina for a nice vintage or antique look.

The finished size of this panel is approximately 8" by 10".
