Mad Enchantment

I may be a touch more impressionable than I tend to think I am. I just finished reading Mad Enchantment, Claude Monet and the Painting of the Water Lilies by Ross King. And so the plan to mosaic an African Daisy on the next tiny mosaic somehow morphed into an homage to Monet...

Ha! You can still see some of the drawing for the African Daisy on the substrate. It wouldn't all erase away. This will be at The Kress Emporium soon.

I recommend the book, by the way. It's fascinating to see the lives of artists set against the backdrop of the times they lived in. I hadn't ever thought about Monet having lived through World War I, and it's interesting to see how the conditions of France during the Grande Guerre impacted his daily life, his psyche and his art.

(Just proofread and the first sentence works on so many levels! lol)

And in case you haven't heard, prints and greeting cards are now for sale on my website! Please go check them out - they'd make a lovely Mother's Day gift!
