Peace Angel ~~ Complete!

Here she is....The Peace Angel. Tomorrow afternoon she will be in her new home.

Until any of my stained glass pieces arrive in their new homes, I always feel the need to protect them. Do any of you feel that way about your work?

I'm very happy with the way this turned out. I find the lavender hues of her gown to be wonderful for the shading in it. Both angels' gowns and wings came from the same glass. It fascinates me, that I can create 'shading' with the color variations in a sheet of glass. My stained glass instructor taught me about that, and I owe her a debt of gratitude. Thanks can see her talent by visiting her website, River Song Art Glass.

In case you were curious about her counterpart, here is a picture of the Jubilation Angel I did a little over two years ago. Both will have a wonderful home in the Foote residence.

She's beautiful, Kathleen! You really got the fluidness of her dress through the shadings. I'm sure the Footes will be delighted.

Thanks Deborah. I'm glad you like her.

Yesterday afternoon she arrived at The Footes. They were very pleased with her. Warms the heart and soul when someone appreciates your work, doesn't it?
