Stained glass piece titled "Gusty"

I created this piece last November before I painted the oil painting titled "Gusty II".  This has hand beveled pieces with hand beveled blown glass bonded on top of the clear bevels.  There are clear beveled pieces throughout the piece.  I was trying to capture the wind pushing and pulling the tree with wind lines flowing with the branches/trunk.  If you look closely you can see a slight texture in the clear background glass.  A friend of mine is going to build a wood stand which this will set into and have chains securing the top of the piece.  When that is complete I will show a better picture of this piece.
I enjoy having part of the design/ wind, tree flow out of the frame.

Settling in

We are settling in to our new home in Pullman, WA and have fixed some computer problems (hopefully) so I am back on.
