Orchid, your pictures are so much clearer than any I was able to take of stained glass windows. They're beautiful.

I never have taken any art courses. When I was working, I was too busy, working a lot of overtime and with various church/volunteer activities. And living in a tiny apartment on a limited budget put most courses out of my budget range.

Now that I have the time and money, I still don't have space, LOL. The house is comfortable enough for just the two of us, but as hard as we've tried to create an artistic nook, it just won't work yet. Maybe when we renovate the smallest spare bedroom next year...
When you don't like a thing, change it.
If you can't change it, change the way you think about it.
