Armenia-inspired Stained Glass Commission

This commission had many elements that needed considering. My patron is Armenia and wanted colors, flowers, and “the evil eye: in some kind of composition. As I was researching Armenia, the countries flowers and the importance of life from their point of view, I found the Kalala tree from Washington State. Not from Armenia but a Tree of Life that exists in the country where my patron now resides. Genocide, struggle, rebirth, protection from misfortune and good luck. The flag representing the rising/setting sun.

So many complex meanings and this glass panel became naturally complex too. I made many sketches before deciding on the final pattern.

Commission work sometimes stretches my skill and my thinking in ways I would not have considered.
