celebrations (other than Winterfest), seasonal and special moments

Stained Glass

original works, BATB themed or inspired

Wallpapers …

Beyond the graphics created specifically for the Great Hall of WFOL, I’ve made several seasonal and anniversary wallpapers. Many of these were main page decorations at my original Imagine That site. Clicking on each image will fully display it.

You’re welcome to download these to use on your desktop. They’re designed for widescreen monitors.   

C and V on her balcony, watching fireworks over the NYC skyline. Text reads: wishing you a much Happier New Year! 2021
Winter Holiday wallpaper 2020. C and V in Central Park, Vincent holds a sprig of mistletoe as people walk past. Text excerpted from John O'Donohue, For Presence: Awaken to the mystery of being here and enter the quiet immensity of your presence. Have joy and peace in the temple of your senses. Respond to the call of your gift and find the courage to follow its path. May warmth of heart keep your presence aflame. May anxiety never linger about you. Take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that seek no attention. Be consoled in the secret symmetry of your soul. May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.

Photoshops and Montages …

These are smaller than wallpaper-sized graphics, ranging in theme – seasonal to just-because. Plus, I’ve managed a few shirtless Vincents. A new window will open to that gallery when you click on the dressing room image. 😀

Stained Glass …

SandyX and I took a glass class together a few years ago. I’m hooked! It’s so much fun. I’m still a beginner, but I’ve finished a few BatB-inspired projects that I’ll share here. Hopefully, I’ll be adding to the gallery soon.

Drawings …

I’ve always said I can’t draw, but the truth is … I’ve never tried, and so, as Catherine put it, I don’t really know what my limits are. Why not start with a Vincent portrait, I challenged myself, and post it for Winterfest? I gave it a brave go, submitting the results to The Ways Change – Outside Your Comfort Zone project of 2017 to, ummm, mixed reviews. Afterward, I bought a how-to book and started in on the lessons. (My snail and my parrot were pretty good!) I haven’t yet produced another Vincent and haven’t even attempted a Catherine, but I did give Father a try for WFOL 2018.

I’ll share my most passable tries here. Doing so is a prime example of ‘facing one’s fears’ – believe me, my fears are large! And loud! But I know these tunnels are a safe haven for my dreams, and I have to believe anything is possible.
