Detail of the window below ...

BAPTISM WINDOW, St John's Church, Southwick, Trowbridge, Wilts.

Pressing stained glass deadlines have taken me away from my painting for a while but I am looking forward to getting back to it again soon. Here's a detail from the most recent window; the subject is 'St John Baptising Christ'. Basically I used a watery theme with fruit and foliage as a background to the figures, and wanted a feeling of an Oasis, richness and an abundance of life-giving water.
