This piece is one that will live in my heart forever. I received an email from a woman who asked if I could create a stained glass panel for her and her sister to give their mother as a Christmas gift.
Her name is Sunny, her sister's name is Jennifer.
She went on to tell me that when they were young, they had very little money and consequently rarely went out to dinner. Instead, their mother made a pretend menu, the sisters would order off of the menu, and would pay their mother with hugs and kisses.
They called this resturant "SunJen Cafe".
Now, full grown, they wanted to create this cafe sign for their mother.
The sun represents "Sunny" and Jennifer means "white wave", hence the wave in the foreground.
This client was a joy to work with and I was so filled with gratitude when she sent me pictures at Christmas of their mother holding the piece.
I was thrilled. THIS is why I love what I do!
