When I see large scale mosaics I am just blown away.
I have been meaning to share a cool site with you and a post I saw today fits right in with the subject of scale. Check out Midcentura.com. The mosaic below is by Spanish artist Josep Renau and it is made up of square tiles. I am usually not a fan of mosaics with perfectly shaped tiles all in the same size, but this work is just amazing.

Ok so if you are a mosaic artist viewing this and thinking like I am well, "yea scale is cool but this is way out of my world of possibility" then please check out the work below by Barbara Keith. It is also very much out of my league but at 5 feet by 13 feet it is the sort of large scale mosaic that I can almost get my tiny brain around. She worked it in panels and that makes a lot of sense to me.
