Day 247 – Starry Night

I had no ideas for tonight’s mosaic.  I opened my supply cabinet and looked at a few different materials and tried some designs.  Nothing appealed to me, though.  This was very unusual for me.  Most nights I either get an idea during the day, on the drive home or as soon as I open the cabinet I know what I’m going to create.  I wasn’t sure what to do so I just sat still for a few minutes.  Still no ideas came to me.  Finally, I decided to get some inspiration from the internet.  I did a search on mosaic artists.  The first thing I came across that caught my attention was a mosaic of Van Gogh’s Starry Night.  I didn’t even check to find out who the artist was (I just checked and it was Brett Campbell).  I love the painting.  It has so much movement.  I decided I would try to recreate that swirling movement on a very small-scale.  I used the small glass eco tiles that I’ve been using for the past couple of weeks.  They’re about 3/8 inch square and I cut them in half so I could get more detail in the design.  I also cut some white glass into tiny pieces.  I really had fun with this one!
