window shopping


I’m shopping for windows for the large painting.  I admit to this first candidate’s being rather ambitious for a window.  I’m not sure how it would work, but I like the idea of an elaborate tracery.  I couldn’t get inside the ballroom of Glen Echo today, so I had to be satisfied with photographing the window from the outside.  And of course whatever window I use for the painting needs a landscape seen through it.  I’m looking for landscapes separately since it’s not often that the window and the landscape are both suited to my longing.

Here is a second, very different candidate at the Jackson School in Georgetown.  Again I had to be content with the outside view and one looking up.  Something about the panes and their colors seemed enchanting.  In this instance perhaps I would use the landscape that’s given, the one reflected on the glass.

But I’m still looking.
