mosaic madness

have that “berringdoo” feeling again…..fantastic! Just spent an hour in my stash room digging in boxes – half an hour to work out how to get in the stash room and climb over mountains of mosaic hordes….I know where things are it’s just hard reaching them….yelling to himself to come and take something from me whilst pirouetting on a box of bottles…dangerous but necessary in my stash room.

Oooooh it was so good to be in there. I am now putting together two sculptures and two hanging pieces for Grammar art Show coming up.
It’s so creative to be on the loose in SandyLand again….no holds barred, the old old creative juices are boiling over.

Popette is on her way over to work on her 30:30…I am planning mine before she gets here…..the 30x 30 boards Dave just made up look so small!
Hmmmmm hmmmm hmmmmm…….but where there is a will there is a mosaic way. Hard to hold myself back…but I have an idea or two that have been festering for a few months.

I can’t stop thinking of other mosaics to make……the flood gates are open again…..I called a piece Flood Gates last year….memories….

Anyway, I recommend a regular trip to the stash room as a mosaic tonic.

Had a fabulous workshop here yesterday and 5 of them already were mosaic addicts so it felt really really really good to be able to inspire them even more….
Dave just repaired an old mini wheelbarrow for me…’s so beautifully rusted…..guess what it’s going to be????
Have a good Sunday….I am looking forward to watching the Chef show tonight, grande finale~ whilst we mosaic of course…..

Sandy in Cairns…good on you for attending the show with your beautiful mosaics…I knew they day I met you in the workshops here you would be passionate about mosaics and I wish we lived closer to, but it won’t be long till you are here in October for a great time of mosaic nuttiness!...and who said I don’t like mosaic fish? One of my sons is a marine biologist ….. LOL….
Cheers!! And keep warm…

my workbenches are now covered in every type of tesserae imaginable.....chess pieces, glass, china handles, keys, you name it, it's on the studio benches!
