Beautiful Fall Weather (with a few new windows)!

New England is at its best at this time of year (in my humble opinion)!  Even though I am back to a very busy schedule at work, I have tried to get out in the kayak or take walks on these beautiful September days.  I went apple picking on a glorious afternoon last week with my parents and my son:
The apple pickers.

How about them apples?!!
This pond was full of floating apples -- anyone for a little "bobbing for apples"?
 And in addition to a beautiful afternoon on the Sudbury river this weekend (which I neglected to photograph!), I went for a long walk with my son late one afternoon -- he snapped this panorama on his iphone:

I'm looking forward to the rest of this season!

And now for a few new windows.  Last summer I did a special order for a family in my town.  This year, they asked for a companion piece.  Here it is (the second photo shows this window in location with last year's):

And I made a blue tree for a friend's birthday:

Happy fall, everyone.

A few new windows

I had time in August to get into my studio and work with glass, glue, and grout.  Here are a few of the pieces that I have completed (these first two are sort of "companion" pieces, though only the top one is for sale -- at 5 Crows gallery in Natick, MA).

The moon scene below is a first -- I hope to play around with this idea more.

And, finally, I've included the red sunflowers below just because it is a better photo of a piece I did in the spring.

Hopefully I'll be able to post a few more pieces soon (before I am completely absorbed into the academic schedule of my life!).
