2009 wrapped

2009 was definitely a whirlwind. I think the biggest change for me in 2009 was the recent surge of mosaic and a TEMPORARY lull in fusing. The last big thing I kilnformed was this sink for my powder room. I have two mosaics that I am just starting and if I had the space, I would have three going on simultaneously. I have also started working with recycled glass and am anxious to see where that leads. I think what makes mosaic so appealing to me is that I can combine fused, recycled and purchased glass. More options! More colors! I can't wait to see what 2010 brings.

2009 was good to me!

My son has a WONDERFUL girlfriend. This is her dog, least how I see Tink. She comes over to you and looks at you with eyes that tell you exactly what she wants. When you go to pet her, she flops over on her back so you will scratch her belly. She looks like a little kid in pajamas. There's a ton of personality packed into this eight year old, ten pound pup!
I hope everyone reading this had a Christmas as good as mine. How did it work out that all the nicest people in the world just happened to be MY friends or family? I am truly blessed, and expecting that 2010 will be even better.

I have been working on this 8x10 for quite some time. And it has been stored in my brain for even longer. Of course it is another excuse to work in blue. Most of the iris is done in transparent glass so it really moves and sparkles when you see it in person. The lashes were crazy hard to cut but then even harder to work around! I think the next work on the "drawing board" is also mosaic. Before that, I have to reassemble my bathroom that I tore apart, and Christmas needs to fit it somewhere.
