Liz and I own Independent Artist Studios, a small business were we design and construct large-scale mosaic mural installations.
With all of our installations being on the East Coast, I decided to mosaic the concrete block wall that encompasses our back yard.
We did not have a ton of material, just a lot of leftovers from old jobs and a mish-mash of odd pieces of stained glass – so I opted to do a totally abstract free-form design for the first panel.
As you can see, I ran out of material just about the same time as the temperatures increased to a point of being prohibitive and non-conducive to outside work.
There is a local stained glass supplier, and I intend to pay them a visit – I want to have this panel complete before the open studio tours this fall.
