Mosaic Commission Completed

Oh! I'm done with my mosaics for the Central Texas Medical Center! It was a two month project that kept me from working on my book, but I was so happy to do it. It is my first public commission out of state, so I'm very proud of it. The five panels (large one is 24x36" and the four small ones are 18x24") will be hung in the labor and delivery waiting room so they will be super visible and will hopefully bring a sense of calm to the expectant mother and her family and friends. :-) They are made with stained glass, millefiori and vitreous. I am anxious to get back to my book but have one more project to get done first: I participated in a game on Facebook where you create something for the first 5 to respond. Well, I took nine names so I'd better get to it! But after that, THE BOOK!!

  1. Congrats! Good job. I really respect artists that can do mosaics on commission. It must be tough working against deadlines. I do that with my digital work, but can not imagine approaching it with mosaics. Keep up the great work! We are lucky to have you here in Texas.

  4. Beautiful project Christine. Not that I wish to be there, labor room is not in my dreams... but I'd really love to see it in real life. I am sure it is even more impressive than in the photos.

  9. Christine, congratulations on sublime mosaics! You have captured something very special in all the mosaic works.
    Your heart and soul goes into them, that's easy to see. Simply beautiful.

    Can't wait to see the book, we stock Barbara's books here is Oz and everyone loves them.

    I have had an idea for a very long time about a mosaic book regarding my dentist, he does mosaics too! Isn't that amazing, such an intereting connection.

    Tony has a fascinations with bridges and mixes oil painting and mosaics in his art - he has a collection of Brisbane bridges in his surgery.

    He is a very funny guy and puts Romper Room on the overhead video whilst he works on my teeth!

    Your dentist is so fantastic to discuss your work as you are in "the chair". I told Tony about how he is in my mosaic book fantasy and he just laughs and laughs.... I can't wait to get your book. I know what it's like to find the time...you have done so well!!!!!!

    I saw your mosaic in the Australia Mural when we visited, it looks so beautiful. Thank you again.
    cheers!

    ps beautiful photo of you too!
