I made two or three of these panels and sent one to one of the Conclaves. One of them hangs on my office wall. Today, I was cleaning the sensors on my camera and did a few test shots. The glass piece made a good subject. It was terribly skewed—a result of me snapping the shot from my office chair and not even trying to get square with the piece.

Adobe Lightroom CC has a very cool new feature called Upright, and that includes an option to line up four guidelines against the angled edges. Presto! The skewed image is squared up. You can do something similar in Photoshop using the Perspective Crop tools.

Oh yes, the bright lines in the glass piece were Angel Gilded, then the centers were filled with a variety of Japanese leaf. I don't remember making an extra screen for the outlines. I believe they were hand painted.
