I am working out the pattern for the tree truck. First in paper scraps, then in copper foil that will be tinned with solder. One more class and this window will be done.
What am I going to do next? I am a devotee of Monet and have always wanted to make some impressionistic piece. Maybe this is that time in my life. I have a lot of scrap glass lying about and would love to use it. Maybe some flowers, or water, or Haitian eyes. Many of Betsy Bowman's pictures are of children and it is their eyes that first caught my attention. (As with all the pieces for the art show in August, it is one of Betsy's photos that the idea for this window is taken.)
