One down, one up, and four new classes!
I have FINALLY finished the tempered glass on the dragonflies mosaic. It seems like such a long time since I started this, although it was only March 5. But I guess I got used to moving through projects more quickly when I was able to work at it full time, and now I get impatient too soon. Anyway, I’ll wait until I grout it to show it to you again. I will have to wait until next Monday or Tuesday in order to let the Lexel cure properly. It doesn’t actually take that long, but Monday will be the first opportunity I will have to work at it without interruption.
But I have some big news to share with you! I am starting a new mosaic that will be included in the book WIP Yourself Into A Mosaic Artist by Rayna Clark. The book will follow works in progress (WIP) by a number of artists from concept through finished mosaic. It will demonstrate the process in much the same way as I do here. The book is expected to be released sometime around the spring of 2012, but I will have more information for you as things progress. I won’t be sharing my work on it here for obvious reasons, so things may be a bit quiet here for the next month or so. But I’m sure I’ll find other things to share!
In the meantime, how about a class in mosaics? You may have noticed a new tab at the top. I am now offering mosaic classes at CrazyLake Art Gallery, and in July, at the Lawrence (Indianapolis) Art Center as well.
