WIP: "Green Place in the City" This is the center panel. I've muted the mint green from the original. Starting work on the houses now! Once this panel is done, I'll attach it to the large board and start in on the surrounding houses.

Here is my next project! I'm collaborating with Sister Ansgar Holmberg to create a large mosaic based on her painting for a new assisted living home. Here is her original painting:
This is the design (see below). It has the original painting in the center, but it's been extended by a circle to echo the interior design theme. There will also be a mosaic border, shown here only with the mustard color.
Here is the board. It is 5'9.5" square made of two layers of wedi board. I made it so the pieces are arranged so there are no straight lines all the way across. This will make it stronger.
I used an overhead projector to trace the design onto the board.The center green space and all of the buildings will be on a 1/4" raised panel.
Getting started! I'm going to try to tame the greens with more yellow based greens.
