Cathy Faye Rudolph, Digital Artist, on "Planetary Traveler":"Of the scenes I created, one of the best-received among the artists was "Stained Glass", which married the ideas of broken blocks of colored glass, glazes of once-molten glass, and a landscape of dry gray marbled granite emerging from a gritty brown sand. Primary colors, and light through glass evoke passionate undertones for me, and thus the Stained Glass scene is perhaps my favorite of the set I made for Planetary Traveler. Over the sand and granite terrain are placed fractured blocks of mono-colored glass in primary hues, arranged as if for viewing by an audience. The landscape is also littered with shards and sheets of transparent glass, lending an sense of hazard to a journey through the landscape. That particular shot shows caps and dribbles of molten glass over the stones. Creating that effect took many hours and many cups of strong coffee."
