A Painting into a Mosaic


"Alcoholism", stained glass on wood, 30" x 24", 2009 (available for purchase)

The above mosaic is based of one of my paintings "Alcoholism" acrylic on canvas, 24" x 18", 1999. I really like the imagery in this painting. It was fun to work on the various eyes and recreate the wacky critters scattered though out the painting. The original painting got damaged over the years but now its reborn in a mosaic form.

  1. Wow! It draws me in. I don't have firsthand experience with alcoholism, but studied it in graduate school and your imagery creates for me what I imagine it could be like. Powerful, and wonderful technique, too.
