Stained Glass


Though it's not truly stained glass but rather painted glass — most of the churches around the neighborhood lack the funds for anything elaborate and therefore do these sorts of approximations. (This is a window of the Katrina-flooded church a block over. Curiously, though the church has never been restored — it still has raggedy blue tarps flapping over large holes in the roof — its congregation has held several events there. One recent night, as I walked past with Floyd, I saw lights glowing and heard the sound of gospel music emanating from within.)

    Not fancy, but very complex.

    1. A little Rothko. A bit of Mondrian...
