Framed Madonna

A 16-year-old student back painted the Madonna. Pretty impressive when you realize how that has to be done. The teacher wanted it framed and, through my daughter, found out that I was a woodworker. Long story short, I agreed to build the frame based on the design that they asked for: “We hope you can make it look like a stained-glass window. When I first saw it, the Plexiglas was rectangular, so I told them, “Of course, I can.” Then they added a couple of interesting complexities. They wanted me to follow the arch and build the frame to fit the new form. Then they asked that I an LED back-light, with a dimmable remote control that can change the LED shade from sunlight, to cool light or warm light. Well it took some planning, but I eventually got it done. Taught me about LED light strips, flexible molding and a few other things.
