New mosaic

I created this mosaic for the upcoming SAMA conference in April.  It will be (hopefully!) bid on during the mosaic art salon and have a new home.  My original sketch didn't change much!  I just needed to add the markings (which many will now recognize as my cat, Raymi's markings).  The mosaic is 8x9" and made with stained glass, vitreous, and millefiori.  It is entitled, "Happy!"

Final mosaic for book is done!

The 15th and final mosaic for my children's book is finished, yes!  Even though I still have so much more work to do, it felt really great to glue that last piece down.  I already see changes I need to make in this one, but I'm going to go back to the beginning and start making my changes there.  I hope to get all of them done in a month, then grout!

Final mosaic for children's book underway

I've just started this last mosaic for my book, which is 12x15" and will be the last page of the book.  I'm using a photo that was taken a few years back as reference.  I love Raymi's pose with her outstretched toes!  It will be fun to use some pretty flower millefiori for the blanket.
