Stained Glass Designs Completed

After a bit of a fiasco with my computer crashing and needing its graphics card replaced, I was finally able to finish the design of the stained glass triptych for Bethany. As I talk with the glass artists about its construction, we might have to tweak some parts of the design or select different colors. But I suspect this will resemble the end product.

There was talk about switching to five panels, which would essentially send me back to square one. I tried to discourage that option, because I think the design would be less solid and unified, and the problem they were attempting to solve would probably not be solved. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Below are the revised sketches that I did...

...and the final design, colored and textured in Photoshop.

The window was designed for Bethany Lutheran College, Old Main, above the entrance facing down the hill. It was commissioned by the (high school) Class of 1952.


  1. This is beautiful! I look forward to visiting Bethany and seeing this someday.

  2. Those are wonderful designs you've made. I really love stained glass because for me they are a wonderful work of art. I often see these huge stained glass designs in churches. We have this in our church and they are so beautiful.
