This is one of the blessings of being an artist. To use a talent to better society and to contribute to the happiness of another is truly the reason to create.
Another amazing benefit is being able to meet such interesting and friendly people. David and I teach classes at the HERE store and gallery in Provo, UT. Each second Friday we gather students to build a stained glass project. This month we made Swiss hearts and last month we all made Nova stars. We come away with new friends and we are able to introduce more people to the art of stained glass.
There are many more reasons to create stained glass but I will have to elaborate another day. Have a creative and courageous day.
