What, you ask, was my inspiration for this one? First, I had a lot of silver and dark bronze or black bling. I had a lot of flower-like pieces, as well as tear drop shapes. The challenge was that I had square and oblong tesserae (very non-organic looking) and just as much round (more organic) bling.
So, I decided I needed to have sky, rain, clouds, and then flowers and a garden. But what about all of that rectangular bling? Ah, a building! Then I remembered from MANY years ago my visit to Central Park in New York. What was next to the park? Awesome art-deco style buildings! Thus was born, "Spring Rain, West Central Park"...a bit cool and a bit warm, all at the same time.
I create mosaics by using reclaimed, recycled, and re-purposed materials.
