sweet love


My new mosaic was inspired by my cat, Shadow. She is a very sweet kitty and I have often thought that she not only has a heart shaped face but that her body echoed that heart while laying in this position. Hence the theme. Stained glass on MDF. 10 3/4" x 13 1/2"

And a slide show of the process of creating this mosaic:

I love this!! I especially love how you did the hearts; it looks very similar to the quilting technique of strip-piecing. Thanks so much for the slideshow; it's inspiring!

I agree with Anna. I really love the way you did the heart background. There's a lovely rhythm to it - the strips forming shapes. Also, the value of colors is different enough so that each individual color can be seen yet close enough so they read as one and don't compete with the main figure. Also, the nuance of the stained glass works beautifully to give visual texture. Beautifully done. Would enjoy seeing you develop the quilt-strip way of working further!

Best wishes,
Brit
