This painting is part of a series of new work designed to recreate the color gradations and texture variations of Tiffany glass. The bucolic landscape subject matter is inspired by Louis Comfort Tiffany's 1905 gigantic window, "A Wooded Landscape in Three Panels," (MFA Houston).  Art historical influences from Islamic mosaics and fiber arts are further sources.
