The Mosaic Saga

My most recent creation is a mosaic that I did in Deep Ellum, Dallas, Texas. The above image is a digital rendering (done with the help of photoshop) of my design submission. The Deep Ellum Foundation had a call for entries, and about 25 (?) designs were chosen to replace the old and fading paintings that were existing.

How did I decide on a mosaic design? Well, seeing as how I had no experience in outdoor painting or mosaic work, I decided it'd be a good idea to submit an entry that combines the two. Some have said this move was 'daring' or 'brave.' Looking back, I see it's just plain foolishness on my part. However, I survived, and now it's time to share! So what I think I'll do is separate the posts out according to phases. Stay tuned!
