I've taken the definition of harvest from the dictionary and excluded anything related to the harvest of a crop to show the way in which I use the term in my life. As I gather images to include on this website, I realize I am much more prolific than I ever realized. In so many ways, I once felt I had wasted time by not living my life in self absorption of the arts. But now I see how wrong that line of thinking truly is... I realize that by living my life in such the way I have, it has given me the very reasons to create.
One more gallery will also be added eventually. At one time in my life I thought I would make my living making stained glass windows. I have a small collection of pictures, some good, some not so good to share of my windows that I need to scan. Along with the windows I also sold stepping stones made of concrete and stained glass at my husbands produce stand one summer. The stepping stones were very popular and I was given many orders to fill. I also had a plan to pursue making a line of outdoor stained glass windows for display in gardens but that idea fell by the wayside because I wasn't patient enough to see if there would be a market for them. My son has a stained glass trellis I designed that my husband and I built with treated lumber. The stained glass roses now reside in a plastic version of the trellis in his yard. He did a wonderful job converting it to a maintenance free garden structure.
