Jack-O-Lantern Panel

Hi everyone! I have a few pieces of stained glass that I made for myself and enjoy bringing out each year,
this Jack-O-Lantern is one of them! 
I feel it embraces the fun of Halloween, and will be an ageless piece. 
Some of the glass is very old, and it really seems to glow when the sun hits it. 
The square brown pieces have whispy white streaks through them, kinda eerie...
It measures approx 13"x13", how's that number for Halloween:@)
In all of the time that I worked on glass, this was the closest orange to a true pumpkin that I found-
I was thrilled!
I don't really have a "before" picture, but this is how the glass looks when I buy it. Approx 8 1/2x11" sheets, I  store them standing up in plate racks.
I'll be joining the following parties:

  31. I had a rather intricate stained glass piece made for me earlier this year and I was stunned at all the work that had to go into it. I felt bad for the artist but she did an amazing job with over 500 pieces.
    The color of your pumpkin is great. It is full of depth and makes it look alive.
