How exciting to have the Grid Project Done! We had the unveiling of the squares at our November meeting. This project is made up of eighteen 11 x 11 squares and is based off of a picture taken of the Rustic Garden business in Buffalo. The squares will be adhered to a black board and will become a community art display. This was definitely a challange to do in mosaics. Glad I decided to be part of this. My square is in the 2nd row on the right hand side.
Here is my square up close next to the picture I had to work from. It is fairly close to the colors. Fun to see them side by side.
Here is my rosebud finally finished! This was from a class I took with Yulia Hananson at the Cape Cod Mosaic School. It is based off one of my pictures. I ended up using a gray grout, which looks okay. Next time I might use a white grout for the large white areas.
Well I am getting closer to being done with my sunflower mosaic. I am glad that the look I was going for is working, wanting the "leaves" to appear to be at different heights and closeness. I think for the background I will have different white glass along with different andemento within it. Hopefully that will look okay. Decisions, decisions...
