Skyway Fish . . .

I finished a new window yesterday. Trying to add some interest and a new element to the stained glass, I etched the Sunshine Skyway Bridge (our link to the Tampa/St. Petersburg area) along with some gulls, into the sky background glass. I have etched before on a much smaller scale in windows, like a bird here or a dragonfly there, but never something this big. Of course, I wish I had a sandblasting chamber and equipment to go with it, but I had to settle on an Exacto knife, a piece of resist, and some etching cream. But I really like the way it turned out, showing the Skyway as a kind of ghostly, foggy presence in the background.
