stained glass cat portrait by Lynn Bridge


7″ x 5″ stained glass portrait

Tomorrow I am delivering this little cat portrait to its bereaved collector.  When the portrait was commissioned, the beloved cat was ill, but now the cat has ‘passed over the rainbow bridge’, so I’m sure it will be a bittersweet delivery.

The portrait looks quite different when lying on a surface- no more transparency. But, the plan is to display it in a clerestory window.

I enjoy doing commissions, although not every artist does.

Have you ever commissioned art?  Or, do you yourself make commissioned art?  What are your experiences?
