Seasons Changing

I've had this idea in mind for quite awhile and the opportunity came along for me to create it.  A friend of mine wanted a present for her sister's 50th birthday and asked me to make a mosaic reminiscent of Vermont with maybe some sugar maple leaves in fall and maybe some mountains.  So I jumped on it, using the leaves as the focal point with mountains changing from summer to winter in the background.  My friend,Gene Reed, is a metal worker and made the frame the mosaic is hanging on.

Spring's Coming!

Here's my latest completed mosaic.  I'm working on a blacksplash for a client in West Chester so that is keeping me busy.  But I am still trying to work in some other pieces as I go.  The idea of creating mosaics based on quilt designs has intrigued me for awhile.  This is the first of many, I hope!
