"Red Perspective" - SOLD

6" x 6" - Mexican or Eco Smalti

My sister is the godess of helping me maintain perspective when mine goes awry. She was helping me out today with my perspective regarding a client as I was color correcting this mosaic. Ergo, when it came time to name it, "Red Perspective" it was.

SAMA Entry Part 1 - NFS

10" x 2" - Marble, glass, mosaic gold, copper, pearls, obsidian, amethyst, amber
In keeping with the mosaic a day idea, I decided that this year I'd create a larger work out of several smaller works for my entry into the Mosaic Arts International juried show. This is the first of the wee mosaics.
On another note, I'm picking the project up again, so you can expect more posts from here on in.
