In Between Two Trees

This last Easter I collaborated with many people in my church to create a stained glass window effect on our windows in the church sanctuary. The wonderful Amy Dry, Rachel Glazener, and Amy Jenson, and I planned and designed it, while many other members helped us to bring our plans into fruition.  Amy Dry wrote such a well written and thoughtful explanation of our goals and ideas, that I thought it would be better to just give you the link:

Tree of the Knowladge of Good and Evil

Olive and Wheat

Palm and Hissop

Vine and Branches

Wheat and FigTree of Life

Redeemer Church Easter Series Installation

A couple of months ago I heard an announcement that my local church would be commissioning artwork for their three-week Easter series.  The three themes would be Christ’s Suffering, Death, and Resurrection.  As art in the church is a personal passion of mine, I enthusiastically applied with a proposal for an installation.  I was accepted  with three other artists! Lets just say, I was excited.

Here is my sketch for part one, of the installation, “Suffering”.

For six weeks I worked hard, and finally this last Sunday I was able to see the first part of my installation come into reality.

I am so grateful to the church for giving me the opportunity to do this project.  I am also thankful for the great reception I receive from the church body as well.  My last thanks go to my friend, Allison whose input and help I greatly appreciate.  And, of course, I must thank my wonderful husband who supported me through this all.

Next week is the second installation! Stay tuned!
