My intention has been to create the window keeping predominantly to blues (using mostly flashed and streaky glass) but punctuating parts of the window with some jewel like points of other colour. Depicted are the figures of Christ and John the Baptist standing in a pool and in the background is water, some falling from above.   Some plant-life foliage and fruit, possibly date palms, are suggested to give an impression of bountiful richness in an oasis setting of the desert. The Dove of the Holy Ghost is emanating light, in the centre above the figures.
With the use of the glass-paint and toned glass the figures should appear as though set against a strong source of bright light and reflections of the water. The traditional techniques of fired vitreous paint and silver stain for yellows, combined with acid etching will be used to create image. .
