O.k., I went with the green because the red was too busy. Have started to glue it down, the tedious part where I listen to a book or something. Grout will be two colors - black cherry and mallard green. (picture the space in between with colors of brownish purple and soft green). I'll cut shape out with my trusty angle head Before grouting.
Have started another little painting on love - the connection between people and pets :~).
Here is my 'Gatito' laid out! The leaf shape is a fat basil leaf. Nature, wildlife, words all inspire my art.
