New Bug Mosaic

( above) Detail
"Fig. 4 Bug"

This is my newest Mosaic. This travel bug is available over at Etsy today. I call him a travel bug because of the map artwork underneath the glass. Bugs are my newest obsession. I love how well the iridescent glass works with these creepy crawlers.

Last Friday I was fortunate to be mentioned in the terrific Mosaic Art Source Blog.
I was thrilled to get some ink so to speak on my mosaic work. Mosaics are my secret passion and a part time pursuit at this point. I love not only making the artwork, but also getting to know a wide variety of talented people that are working in the media.

I am currently working on a promo video for a collaborative pink flamingo project that my teacher is in charge of. I actually am not participating in the mosaic project myself, but I am a total fan of what is going on with Katrina and her army of flamingo artists I hope to post their video soon.

Your mosaic work is fantastic, Rebecca. I like the bug theme...they are always good subjects with their shapes and lines. Congrats on the write-up too!
