This stained glass astrology chart was
originally a freehanging stained glass artwork that was purchased by
a friend as a gift. Once he indicated his desire to give it as
a gift, I painted his girlfriend's astrological chart on the artwork,
including the 12 signs of the zodiac - one in
each of the twelve green circles. The only thing I would do differently
today would be to use computer-cut sticky vinyl for the chart and
signs of the zodiac instead of paint. Those would be much more perfect
looking than my painting could ever be.
photo used to be on this page, it is no longer here
as it was never a photo that showed off the artwork well. But, in 2005,
a visitor to my web site contacted me to make a version of the
original design. He and his wife wanted just that design in stained
glass - to be mounted in an opening on a stairwell in their home - but
without any hint of the astrological part. I guess that goes to show
that each patron of an art form has their own
interpretation of what they see in it.
artwork I made for them (shown here) came out
perfectly rectangular. It's only the photo of it that doesn't look
