About this project

This three light, each 400 x 1910 (16” x 75”).

The design is based on Psalm 1:3, New Living Translation – “They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season”.

The tree is standing with its roots in the water, with only a suggestion of a riverbank separating sky, land and water.  The tree continues to grow up beyond the top frame of the window, giving the impression that growth may continue indefinitely, beyond just what we experience in our earthly lives.
