Stained Glass on "found" substrate
about 13" x 14"

Stained-glass on wood. About 14" across x 13" high. Many years ago, I had a coffee spoon collection which was displayed on this board. I filled the holes from the hooks and prepped it to be a mosaic substrate.
I've done a number of Canada geese in flight before so a template was at hand and perfect on this substrate. Above the goose's head and neck, I did wider-than-usual grout lines to hint at the profile of the Three Sisters Mountain which dominates the skyline we see every day from ur home. I lucked into finding a pearl in my collection of bits and pieces for its eye--a perfect fit. It was a challenge to try to make the lovely cloudy, streaky blue glass look like a realistic sky! (PS I doubt if geese's eyes are white, but I felt it needed to contrast with the black head!)
