Elephant Walk Mosaic

A new piece for my mini mosaic abstract series. I started off with the nebulas and as usual, the artwork morphs back to representational. Art has been as much a discovery of self in the work. I am the work, it is an extension of myself.
I love abstract and contemporary pieces, but have found they do not come as easily and I actually have to work Harder to make a satisfactory abstract piece.
This little guy is 6x5" and made with stained glass, tempered glass, stones, vintage bugle beads. Just bits and pieces I have had. While I would totally deny being a "pack rat", a glance in my studio says different. Little stashes of stones, beads, fossils, etc.."Stuff" - stashes for the next special midnight project!

Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick

One of my Very Favorite authors. His passion shines in his work. The books are wonderful for Any age. The Invention of Hugo Cabret is so captivating - both the audio and the book itself. In the audio you are drawn in by all the sounds, as if you are right there. Highly recommend listening as well as reading these books!
