Still influenced by Laurel Skye.
Tonight I honor my friends’ mom who passed away last week.
Several months ago Laurel sent me beach glass that she and her mom collected during a vacation. I thought this would be a perfect time to use it. My first thought was to make a heart but then I saw a bird soaring and realized that was the perfect image. I know that their mom is soaring freely now that she is free of her body.
Laurel and Lynn, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Love you all.
This week was mostly about abstract designs – playing with shapes and colors.
I have a bunch of tiny millefiori glass and I thought it would be fun to use it to create a picture. Trees are one of my favorite subjects.
I took a walk tonight before I made my mosaic and I saw a tree in my neighborhood with beautifully curved branches. I was thinking about the tree when I started working on tonight’s design.
I cut the curved glass and then filled in the spaces with the little pieces of blue. I was surprised when I looked at the picture that the blue became the design and the brown glass looks like the background.
