A celebration of glass windows

Today’s blogging challenge is to write about glass windows. I love windows made of glass. They are beautiful. They are see through and they are reflective at the same time.

Glass windows were invented in the fourteenth century, but they weren’t used in homes until the sixteenth century.

Before that, most glass windows were in churches and cathedrals.

They were beautiful, decorative stained glass windows that were made with methods that are no longer used for a number of reasons, including safety.


I love to draw and paint windows and to take photographs of windows, just because they are so beautiful.

In this blog post, I have tried to show a wide variety of window styles that have attracted my eye within the past few years. I hope that you have enjoyed the tour of Western New York windows.
