Stained Glass at Hollywood Forever Cemetery

I've gotten a lot of inspiration for stained glass projects lately, both at the Magic Castle and at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. This post shows the stained glass at Hollywood Forever.

These beautiful peacocks are right at the entrance to the cemetery, near the building with the flower shop & tours. They were my favorite that I saw that day, for their coloring in beautiful earthy browns, creams, golds, and light green. I also love the way the ivy on the building frames the window.

Over in Section 2, near the old original gate, is a small building with lots of windows. The rest of these pictures were taken of that one structure. Each window was more beautiful than the last. Most of them seem to be done by the same artist, but each pattern is subtly different. They have great movement and imagination. You can almost feel the wind sweeping through the landscapes.

This painted glass is my favorite window in this building. Notice any theme in my color choices?

Where is the prettiest stained glass you've ever seen? Any favorites in the ones above? Let me know your thoughts in a comment.
