I just spent a few days in Venice where the Byzantine artists worked realist mosaic magic. Faces and fabrics and water and landscapes come alive with their mosaics. But I also find the modern graphical mosaics to be equally compelling.
I enjoy watching hard objects turn into 'soft' images and I love, love, love the textures and the way mosaic "pixels" transform into images!
I have long wanted to try my hand at mosaics but never seem to find the opportunity or time...I think I finally found it! I love watercolors and tend to turn every other art form I try into a watercolor...we'll see how that plays out in mosaics...
Fun! I have learned so much and made some wonderful art in the process. Kathy is a great teacher!
