Work in Progress on Giant Oak Leaf

I'm working on the first panel right now, a big oak leaf. TIP: If you work with Weldbond, you might want to try keeping it upside-down in a container. That way, the glue is always ready at the tip for you! You can see it in the picture here. I use an old cottage cheese container.

New Project

Hi, all! I'm starting in on a new project. This one is going to take six months. It will be several panels, all five feet high of varying widths. When put together, the mosaic mural will be 13 feet wide. It will be all glass mosaics. I've measured and cut all the wedi boards, attached french cleats to the back, drawn all the designs, and now I'm starting in on the leaf.

Two more mosaics

I've just completed two more mosaics. The one on the left is titled "My Dream Goes Wandering" (stained glass mosaic, 38"h x 24"w). On the right is "Day Has Just Begun" (stained glass mosaic, 40"h x 19.5"w). Both will be heading to clinics, on in Minnesota and one in Wisconsin.

A new design

I got a Wacom digital drawing tablet! It makes it easy to draw in Photoshop, and I can blend images with my drawings. Here is my first design done on the Wacom, one of two mosaic projects I'm working on right now.
