Honey Bee Sipping from a Cone Flower
This window is about 14" x 16" and was commissioned by a local bee keeper. The frame is made from butternut.
Double Lotus
I kayak in the backwaters of the Mississippi River quite often in the summer. The water lilies are everywhere and very beautiful. They are a testament that beauty can indeed grow from mud and thin stems. This window is about 16" x 14".
I am very fortunate that my husband, Jim Beske, makes all my frames out of a variety of woods.
 
Sun Stained Glass
Moon Stained Glass

These stained glass windows are four of six windows where my client wanted in this order: Sun, Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring and Moon. Each window is about 12" x 13". They fit into cupboard frames on either side of her fireplace. I still need to make winter and spring.

Eagle Soaring
This window measures 21" x 28". It was commissioned by a principal in a town by the Mississippi River. She planned to hang it in her office at school to inspire her students to appreciate fine art and recognize how fortunate they are to have a healthy community of eagles in the area.
