Gallery 1988 in Melrose CA, asked me to participate in a Stan Lee group tribute show. I decided this would be a great opportunity to create a stained glass window instead of an oil painting. Given the fact that Stan Lee has created so many wonderful characters, it was a tough choice to choose the subject of the piece. After much deliberation and research, I decided Spider-Man was the quintessential Stan Lee creation and decided to focus on the iconic “birth” of the character… I.E. his fist appearance on the cover of Amazing Fantasy #15 in 1962.
Stan Lee attended the opening for a private viewing. It was quite an honor to meet him and hear his feedback on the window.
Much preliminary planning work is done before any physical labor begins.
