Shenandoah Sunset

Shenandoah Sunset, stained glass mosaic on board, 12" x 24", 2012 NFS
I created this landscape as a wedding present for two of my very special friends.  A few years back, a group of our friends and us spent a lovely weekend at Shenandoah National Park.  In the evening the mountains began to turn purple and we enjoyed a really beautiful sunset.  When I decided to create a mosaic as my gift, I knew that it had to be inspired by that moment.  For further inspiration I used another one of my mosaic which the bride really seemed to like when she visited my studio a while ago.  Below is a photo of that piece which actually expresses my impression of the first time I witnessed a sunset in the mountains.
