At our last mosaic ATC card swap in May I was asking one of the artists what she was working on and she replied that she has a few Mosaic UfO's sitting around. I was very intrigued and immediately thought of the work of Eve Lynch. When I pressed her for more details she informed me that UFO's are Un-Finished Objects. I laughed out loud and was happy to discover this important new mosaic term ( thanks Theresa).
Focus on what you "are" doing, not what is undone:
My goal for the year is to finish 14 new mosaics for an upcoming art show in September, take a mosaic class in Italy in the fall and then after a crazy busy holiday season here at Art Paw creating pet portraits I will tackle all of my unfinished fine art mosaic projects next January.

Kim Grant's Blog: Kim did a recent post about Howard Grange. I love Kim's blog because she writes from the heart and will even go off on an occasional rant. She very much has a journal style approach in her blogging.
Margo Antone has a blog where she posts tiny mosaics she creates in a Mosaic-a-day approach, much like the popular painting a day blogs.
