Onward to mosaic info for the month and enough of that!
This is a mosaic I am currently working on-It will be called "Autumn Sail" This will go into the gallery since we are having an Autumn theme in our "L" area as you walk into the gallery. I am using the technique for cutting that I learned in Yulia Hannanson's class last month. This is on Wedi Board and I am using mostly stained glass with a few buttons and mirror shards in it.
This is an area in our front outdoor entry. Imagine that, I am thinking of doing a mosaic for myself! I have been so caught up with making things for the competition, shows and the gallery that I have not taken time to make one for our home. This will probably be about a 2' x 3' rectangular piece. I am thinking of a waterfall scence with flowers and a bench. The biggest challenge will be to make the boulders in the mosaic-how do you make rocks look like rocks, there are so many colors to them.
This is a sweet little piece that I just finished for the gallery. It is based off my Mundo de la Musica piece. The title of this one is Acoustic Nocturne. I still can't get away from using the bright primaries-I am just drawn to the those colors for now.
Goals for September
-Finish Autumn Sail mosaic
-Draw up idea for entry mosaic (and hopefully start on it)
-Attend Mosaic Guild Meeting
-Attend a workshop on career planning for artists
- Start putting together a plan for the October presentation I am doing for the art guild
-Start on a small mosaic to have ready to grout for the presentation
