Hurry up Spring...Sunflower Panel

I am anxiously waiting for spring to come! To get me in the mood, I made this sunflower stained glass panel. It is 8 1/2 x 11 in size and done with some really fun textured glass. I decided to use the antique green patina over the copper foil. I love all of the bright colors and the cheery look of this panel. I think I may even plant a sunflower this year!

There's a cardinal in my tree

I recently bought a bird feeder to hang outside near my kitchen window so I could watch the different birds that hang around the midwest in this horrible weather. As much as I know about cats (little) I know even less about birds. But, surprisingly, I am having a blast watching these things! I now keep the camera right next to the window. They are so pretty. I decided to do a stained glass window of the cardinal. I am including in this post a picture that I took in the tree as well as the newest stained glass piece of artwork. I used some etched clear glass for the background that really looks much like ice/frost. The branches are done in a glass that is very textured and has the look of a branch I think. The berries on the branches are made with glass globes and add a dimensional look to the piece. It was really fun to do.
