Here is a stained glass pattern of a beautiful lady soaking up the summer sun.
I used a picture of a woman reclining as the basis for this pattern. The original picture showed her leaning back with her hand on the ground. Her hair was not as long as I made it.
One of the reasons I lengthened her hair, (aside from liking longer hair,) was that I was just not satisfied with the way her hand looked when I made the pattern. I did not want to make too many small pieces in order to make her hand; her hand was not the focus of this pattern, and I thought too much detail there might detract from the design. It would also be more difficult to make. So, I used her hair to cover up her hand.
I like the sense of golden summer sunshine in this piece. I hope you like it, too. If you make this piece, or any of my patterns, please send me a photo, and I will post it here and on my Flickr page.
The Sunbather stained glass pattern is available in a color jpg, a black & white jpg, and the GlassEye 2000 format.
