imagining Hope, again



 The bad news floats between my friend and I.

I sit in her office, then she asks me to create a gift of hope.  In the past I have done stained glass pieces to bring her hope for healing, but mosaic comes to mind as I take in the news of our mutual friend's health concerns.  As the day goes on, a  design comes to mind, and when this happens it is always a rough draft.  I imagine a rectangular piece of slate. Hope fills the bottom left.  Below it I swoop a base out of glass.  At the top right is a swirl that flows across the top.  I imagine Mosaic Woman filling that swirl with warm colors.

Then we make it happen.

  1. I like your stained glass; I actually went to the Etsy shop under "Nutmeg" and bought "a little red, blue and purple suncatcher."

  2. This is really lovely, Wayne. Is there anything better than hope at times like these? I think not.
