Last month, in the midst of the A to Z Challenge, I received a lovely surprise--a stained glass piece featuring the logo of the St. Louis Cardinals. In October, prior to the 2013 World Series, Ed Irish, who is as big a fan of the Boston Red Sox as I am a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals, proposed a bet on the outcome of the Series. If the Red Sox won, I would create a painting for him; if the Cardinals won, he would make a stained glass piece for me. Of course, I lost the bet and in January I made a pastel painting of Fenway Park for Ed.
I am thrilled with this beautiful piece of art. Thank you, Ed Irish. What an amazing surprise!
