The above mosaic is based of a photograph I took at Killington Mountain in Vermont this past September. It was a beautiful day and the cloudy but sunny atmosphere created a retro feeling - at least for me. The rolling mountains were dressed in oranges, ochers, and yellows with occasional green pines that concentrated on the highest peaks. Every time I work on a mosaic inspired by Vermont - a place very dear to my heart, I feel that I give back some of what Vermont has given me, which I cannot put into words.
Below you can see how the mosaic is framed in a custom black ebony stained oak floating frame.
