Design Inspiration

Whatever the day has brought the sun will always set and it will be beautiful. Using the style of stain glass windows I wanted to portray something certain, pure, and eye-catching. Life can often feel like an anxious blur and we do not have control over many things but one thing we know for sure is that the sun will always set and tomorrow is a new opportunity to start over.
