"The Greens of Nature"

6" by 5"- Marble, malachite, fluorite, fuchsite, and other green natural stones
 
Okay, I'm back!  In an effort to get in the studio more, I'm reviving the Mosaic a Day project.  This project is so good at exercising the brain to think creatively, and I'm definitely in need of some of that.  I'm aiming this time for just 3 mosaics a week, in order to work in on larger pieces as well. 
 
So in thematic St. Paddy's Day style, I give you the greens of nature.  All the pieces are naturally occuring rock and stone.  I hardly ever create my focal point to the right hand side of my art works, and so this was a challenging departure for me. I'm going to have to try this again, for I like the result.
 
I also want to mention that I'm scheduled in April to teach the techniques I've learned throughout the course of the project at the Institute of Mosaic Art in Oakland, CA.  I taught this course there last year in June, and we had such a marvelous time.  For more information, visit IMA's website.
