Serenity: Weekly Photo Challenge

This week’s Daily Post photo challenge is about sharing one’s interpretation of serenity.

It got me thinking about how I would depict serenity in stained glass. Not a serene setting or scene per se, but the actual quality of serenity. Or how would one interpret happiness, joy, sadness or anger in an abstract manner using glass as a medium?

Anger, for example, could be done up in shades of dark or flaring reds and slashing lines and sharp angles. But then it could also be the cold, icy blue calmness of the type of anger that says, “I don’t get mad; I just get even.”

Makes me want to play around with such concepts and see what kind of designs and color schemes might arise.

But on to the photo challenge:

Serenity can be about finding a calm, peaceful setting in nature where one can slow down and restore their sense of balance.


Or serenity could mean spending quiet time in the company of loved ones.


But to me, serenity comes mostly from allowing myself to

be who I really am

wherever I am

in the moment…


… and to have that be perfectly okay.

    I like the idea of conveying emotions or words through stained glass. Everything I look at makes me feel a certain way, but I don’t usually consider the artists intent; whether that was the message or just a residual byproduct that occurred. Also, cute baby!! 😉
