First panel done

I grouted the first panel of three today. The panels will be going into a new Jamestown, North Dakota, hospital. I'm so excited to be involved. My mom and her family is from the area and I grew up going there. They lived near the tiny town of Streeter.

I am using doilies in all three mosaics to symbolize the hard work and dignity of the immigrants to came to this area. I've included some detail shots. There are two doilies in this piece, one more obvious than the other.

The panels will each be inside a niche, with about half an inch of wiggle room. I'm gluing a glass edge on these pieces to give them more of a finished look.

New Project

I'm working on a new project - a triptych. For these, I'm using doilies under the pieces of glass, of which some are transparent. Because the boards may be visible, I painted them first.
