Canticle of the Sun with St. Francis in Contemplation

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Here is the black and white image of the skylight.  The center is St. Francis in Contemplation.   Around the outer border is The Canticle of the Sun, an important poem by St. Francis of Assisi.  The four center areas are, from the top left clockwise, Culture and Diversity, Applied Ethical Reasoning, The Franciscan Vision, Self, Service, and Society, and Journey to Selfhood. 
Next I will have it scanned and copied at 100%.  They I'll have it enlared 10 and 20 %.  That copy I will use to create a cartoon to begin producing this in glass.   I'll also have it digitally imaged at a high resolution.

The original will next be filled in with full color in colored inks and watercolor, then framed.

Hello Sister Kelly. I am a reporter with "Community News" for Lodi, New Jersey. I stumbled across your blog while browsing the Internet for Lodi info. (I also have a Blogspot blog.) Your glass project for Felician College is very intriguing, and I would be interested in writing about you and the project some time.

Dear Susan,
Yes, this would be great. Perhaps when I return to Lodi in January and I'll be giving a lecture on this at that time.
Please contact me by email at
Take care,
