Well, here I am, one of 3 finalists for a stained glass window design. The contest is for a window in St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church in Shoreline WA, just north of Seattle. The congregation is making the winning window themselves, under the direction of Joe Hester...The above photo is my final entry, after the critique that the congregation of St. Dunstan's would need more detail so more people could be involved in its making. The entry I originally submitted was a very simple design. See below:
The basic idea is seeing the Light of God in everyday life, in this case through the trees. My inspiration was a photo of the window itself, through which I could make out the branches of trees that were really there.
Here's a picture of the window in the church.
