Transformation: Pet to Portrait

This week’s Daily Post photo challenge is around the theme of “Transformation.”

A new undertaking for me is turning pet portraits into stained glass representations; a transformation from photo to cartoon pattern to stained glass panel! And even the finished project is transformed with every change of lighting throughout the day.

Take a look!
