"Tropical Paradise"

Stained-glass window triptych

By Lester DR Thompson, MD and Pamela A Thompson, MFA

Lester DR Thompson, MD, is a Pathologist at the Woodland Hills Medical
 Center in Woodland Hills, CA. As a Pathologist, he looks through a microscope 
all day to try to separate colors and shapes into meaningful diagnoses. He finds
 that working with stained glass is a similar, though more creative, process.
 Dr Thompson collaborated with his wife, Pamela, to create this piece to 
honor the 25th wedding anniversary of his sister-in-law and brother, Glynn M
 Thompson, MD, a physician in the Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic Region.
