Unity on Earth

Unity on Earth, stained glass on wood, 20" x 16", 2008  ~SOLD

This mosaic is based of one of my paintings: "Unity on Earth", acrylic on canvas, 20" x 16", 1999. I painted it when I was a teenager and the images stayed with me since. Today the original painting hangs on my living room wall. One day I thought, "That would make a great mosaic ..." so I got out my nippers. I had to work meticulously to sculpt out the tiny leaves, the little stars, to give life to all the little animals and flowers and to create a roaring fire and a flowing waterfalls.

  1. This piece is exceptionally beautiful. I love the theme, the colours, the way you have laid the tiles. Truly a master in your field. Gorgeous work! Dionne
