Stained Glass Window- California Poppies

We spent Christmas away from home, and I haven't been painting for the last few weeks- but I have made some progress on my latest stained glass window. I haven't been going to the glass studio every week because of the holidays, but I did manage to get my pieces ground and on my board. I love this stage of work, since you can finally see what the window will look like. Next step- foiling the edges and getting ready to solder.
I got the pattern for this window from my mom. She made a window like this many years ago, and my compliments to the artist who made the original window! My mom's window was made with lead, and mine will be soldered with foil, but the look will be the same. I can't wait to finish it and have it in my home- I have always loved seeing it in my mom's kitchen window.


  1. Sheryl, this is so cool! I love your family ties. I'm the same way with my mom. She is very creative and talented, but she doesn't think she is. She always gives me terrific ideas to try. I never would have had the nerve to paint one wall in our living room purple without my mom's encouragement:)

  2. Candy- so true! My mom has always been creative and more importantly, very encouraging!

  3. Love your stained glass work - and these poppies are excellent! xx

  4. Thanks, Pat- I am looking forward to seeing it done!

  5. Dear Sheryl,
    The work is gorgeous and how clever you are.
    Wish you a very, very Happy New Year!!
    Cheers, Sadami
