In the post light shining through, I pondered what to do with a photo of sunlight shining brightly through the dramatic decorative glass on the doors leading into the sanctuary at Trinity Church. Well, with the aid of a noreaster that left me housebound, inspiration did strike. I hope people like the results. These two items, and other merchandise featuring this original design, can be found at the shop at Trinity Church starting next week.

It is a new year and one of the things I intend to do is continue to tap into my inner child and play with shapes and colors. These images, produced with GIMP, begin with a tiny detail from the beautifully painted ceiling inside Trinity Church Boston.

I suspect my perspective of these flowers, mostly planted in a median strip, are somewhat colored by having recently watched a documentary on the Hubble telescope. Enjoy, and have a good day, folks.

Okay. So I’ve been thinking about this since spring really sprung and the oak that arches over the house finally leafed out. To sit with a big piece of white paper before me. To sketch a rectangle and then crisscross the rectangle with diagonal lines. And then with markers or even paint to place dabs of color on the branches to symbolize what I have seen. Red for the cardinals. Blue for the jays. A swoosh of gray for the squirrels. Yellowish-green for the finches. Black-specked brown for the sparrows.
