Something old, something new, something borrowed, something-

In the coming months you will be seeing more artwork done with mixed media from me. This portrait was created using a pulled art technique used from Mystele who's artwork is so unique and impressive, and Suzi Blu's online classes whom I can say the same for --(their information is invaluable.Totally two different artists but whom I have such a fondness for. Oh, I had better mention Julia Peters who never ceases to amaze me.

As a mosaic artist I love texture, so it seems that with everything I create has texture-as you see in this piece. You will see more of her maybe in the future because I will be adding more elements to her...or maybe not.

Have a great weekend!

What was your kick in the butt?

I am curious-is there a book that seemed to "change your life"? When I was around 25/26 - (eeewwww that's about 25 years ago or more...eeeeek!!)My cousin Debby came me this book to read. I had never been one to read inspiration books or say "churchie" books but, I thought I would try this. It did change my life and the way I thought about things. I needed that at this time in my life. Dr. Peale was an amazing person and I suppose one of the first of many postive speakers. You may know someone that could use this book. Do you have a reading that "changed your life"? I am interested in hearing from you!

Teal Mosaic Mirror

Do you remember this mirror? Waaaaayyy back a few weeks ago I start this teal mosaic mirror. I had to put it to the side because of several events, such as moving into the new studio building, First Friday, laziness, and too hot or too cold. I have now basically finished it and usual it doesn't look anything like what it started to be-and I am glad! I just could not look at that pattern any longer. Now, I really like the way it turned out. I am going to add some metal lettering I think, but before I did I wanted to share. What do you think?
The materials are vitreous tiles. Approx. measurements are 12"w x 24"h w
