Mosaic Monday / Mandy

Mandy
Originally uploaded by Carol Shelkin Mosaics
Carol Shelkin is probably best known for her amazing mosaic portraits of humans, however she has done several really wonderful animal mosaics, including a few pups. Carol paints with stained glass and is well known in the mosaic world. She is a master of shadow and light. Her subjects have a 3 dimensional quality that is hard to achieve with glass. In this portrait of Mandy I just adore the way she has captured the natural shape of the ears and the variety of her cuts keep your eyes moving.
