If I could be in two places at the same time I’d want to be on earth and in heaven. Because I would still be one person with one consciousness, I imagine that both places would sort of merge into each other in front of your eyes.

I decided to make a stained glass window to execute my idea. This goes well with the heaven-theme. Also by making it into a window you can still see the world behind the art-work. I think this adds to the idea of being in to places at once.

The drawing is placed under the glass on a light table, which makes it able to see the drawing once you put paint on the glass. I chose brown tined glass and made a transparent coat of brown and black paint. Than, with the same colour, I made the contour lines.

Second layer. Putting a layer of paint over the whole surface for shading. When the paint is dry, you can scrape away what you don’t need.

After three times in the oven, my image is done.

Now it can be turned into a window!
