Mosaic Monday: Red Sky at Night, Artist's Delight
I love Mosaic Mondays; the idea of making a photo mosaic spurs my creativity and also allows me to review my past creations and affirm that time spent creating is time well spent. This mosaic spans six years of creativity, from the art quilt I made back in 2005 (traded to a good friend for some of her wonderful pottery) to the mosaic I made in 2009 to the photo and fiber/glass necklace I created last year. I like to combine images based on both color and theme, and "sunset" can span everything from soft pastels to the deep jewel tones presented here. I was thinking earlier that I would not have time to create anything in the next few days because of coursework and travel (Lucy goes to the vet in ABQ tomorrow for a 2-week post-surgery checkup), but lo and behold, I already have. Be sure to check out other wonderful photo mosaics linked up here, and try making your own -- it's really easy, and whatever theme you pick you're sure to come up with something beautiful!
