Star Wars - Fly away...

Fake stained glass

One high school art assignment was to design a stained-glass window.

My mind went straight to imagining a lightning bolt.

Here's my first sketch:

And the final version:
I'd want a stained-glass window like this.

I'm still a little conflicted about leaving the ribbon of clear sky on the horizon white; maybe I should have colored in the "glass pieces" with subtle sunset colors, but keeping it white keeps the image from being overwhelmingly dark.

Crap. I lost a cap.

Last Saturday while running errands, I was wearing a red wool knit cap until I wasn't. Shoot. I liked that cap. I'd won it at Geek Trivia, years ago. It was a Too Much Coffee Man (created in 1991 by current Portland resident Shannon Wheeler) cap: the logo on the front, a skull on the back.

I most likely left it on a bus, and TriMet Lost & Found hasn't yet found it, so either it's entirely lost, someone found it and threw it away, someone found it and kept it — probably the ideal scenario — or None Of The Above. I just know I don't have it.

Luckily I have a green knit wool cap, because it's cold. Meanwhile, here is my last photo of it, snapped at Beulahland earlier last Saturday:
