Feels SO good to be mosaicking again. I took time away from my studio for a residency. Then my husband and I were in Denver to see my son and daughter-in-law for 10 fantastic days. I spent a day with an amazing young artist and her equally amazing mom. So after that, I immediately resumed work on my selfie. This morning, Bonsai gives me that skewed sideways smile and says, "Girl, you are nailing this mosaic. You didn't even need to be so honest about the wrinkle between your eyebrows because nobody notices it but you." I told him thank you and immediately made him employee of the month. This is so much evidence to me that dogs, particularly shih tzus, are smarter than they are given credit for. Anyhoo, the hardest part of this mosaic is DONE. Starting on dots and stripes tomorrow. You knew that was coming!
