Painted Windows
From an original oil by John Blake Bergers

"...the painted glass windows shone out at us as we came along the frozen street. In the winter bleakness a hunger for colour came over people, like the Laplander's craving for fats and sugar. We used to linger on the sidewalk outside the church when the lamps were lighted early for choir practice for prayer-meeting, shivering and talking until our feet were lumps of ice. The crude reds and greens and blues of that coloured glass held us there."
Inspired by Willa Cather's My Antonia
