"Silent Night" represents August 2 in the 100 Waves of Summer series. The crystal stars project prisms when the window is in direct sunlight. The ocean is made up of clear textured glass. This panel was inspired by a very still and dark night walking on the beach.

100 WAVES of SUMMER
Each stained glass panel in the "100 Waves of Summer Series" is a limited edition of five panels per day of summer. In the summer of 2007, I walked up to the beach every day gaining inspiration, then went back to my studio and designed a wave in stained glass. There are actually only 95 days in summer, so the series continues into autumn; a beautiful time of year.

ARTIST STATEMENT
There are waves all around me. I would like to be surfing the waves in the ocean but I haven’t had a free moment lately. I have been surfing the other waves in my life and this has set me on a very happy course.
I have learned to look forward to those low pressure systems. They bring really big waves that are not so scary if I study them first and then decide where my soul wants to go. If I decide to paddle out into them, I can anticipate what the rough water might do. Instead of getting hurt, I learn and I grow. When there is a high pressure system and the waves are small, I know that this is my time to rest, soak up the energy, and reflect. I know that if I rest too long in the sunlight, I can get burned.

I am grateful for the currents constantly moving me. The waves enrich my soul and path in life. The 100 Waves of Summer is a celebration of waves.
