Six Little Preludes - Work In Progress

I'm starting in on a project for Children's Hospital - Minneapolis. This will be on the third floor, which has the theme of "Music". I covered the backer with sheet music of Bach's "Six Little Preludes" because some of the background will be done in transparent colored glass. Now that I've drawn out the design, I'm beginning to mosaic the six little songbirds. Below is the first little guy, using stained glass, iridescent glass, and VanGogh glass. The glass on the birds is opaque, so you will not see the music.

Just found your blog and site - pretty fun! Project sounds great. I also work with clear glass and Weldbond. It's easy, fun! Your work inspires me!

Hi Rebecca and Sue, started in on another bird today after changing the eye of the first bird. Much better now!
