My Mom did stained glass while I was growing up and I always thought it was so beautiful. This is my simply my version, with different materials, of course. I started this after a hospital visit to a close friend and co-worker, Justin, who was in a coma. It was the first time for me to see someone in that state since losing my Mom 12 years ago. I sat in church that same morning having a conversation with Mom and Justin while looking into the stained glass all over the church. The birds represent 'us' flying around, spending time with those that we are unable to speak with.
