Monday Mosaic Blog-Day 243

I made the decision to make the piece for the hospital. So...I had to put all my other projects on hold. I drew up a sketch based on Klimt's "Farm Garden". This will definitely be a challenge because of the size and the time limit. I already put 12 hours into it.

The substrate is birch plywood
The size is 12" high x 30" wide, the reason for the size is that it will be going over a hospital bed.
The materials I'm using are stained glass, vitreous glass, crystalline glass, Karma tile, beads, and millifiori.
It's due on May 7th and then it goes through jurors to see if they will even choose my piece for the hospital.

I figure if they don't choose it for the hospital I can always put it in a show or hang it on our wall at home-I really like the bright colors.

Also to get ideas for this project I made a trip out to the landscape arboretum. It was such a beautiful day! I loved walking around and taking pictures. It was such a great way to do some "research". The tulips were so beautiful!
