I'm excited to get the three large flowers done with so I can now concentrate on the background of my project for the hospital. I like how it's looking so far, I'm still trying to balance the colors so it's not too dark in some places or too much of one color other places. I'm using a lot of different materials and andemento. I'm thinking of doing the "grass" area with blocks of green materials and the background around the large flowers more flowing with larger pieces. Also I am going to be putting letters making the words of the title "Sweet Child of Ours" in the piece. I've never done that before and think it would be a nice touch.
I'm thinking it would be great to get the piece done by next Monday so then I can grout it next week!! (Ahead of schedule!)
Plan for the week
Everyday work on the piece with Sunday off hopefully with have it finished by next Monday!

Also I finished my smalti piece with bleeding hearts! I am done now with the smalti class that Connie Cohen taught-Thanks to Connie I now feel more comfortable cutting smalti-I still can't get over how long this took to complete. Overall I am happy with the piece it was nice to know how to use the gray scale to choose color and to lay it out with that process in mind.
Friday-Saturday-Get ready for my daughter's graduation party (I still can't believe I will have one graduating!)
Monday-start on background. Still not sure what I am going to do yet. (and remember to blog)
