Green Mountains


Green Mountains, stained glass mosaic on board (framed), 36" x 36", 2012

I've always loved mountains but none as much as green mountains!  I don't just love mountains but hills as well - combine mountains, hills and a perfect blue sky and I'm in paradise =)  I feel that I am on a quest to find my perfect landscape, my perfect green hills that roll back into the distance and evolve into magnificent mountain peaks.  When I lived in Lismore, Australia I was mesmerized by the endless rolling hills covered by beautiful carpet of green grass.  I used to look out the bus window and as it glided up and down the sloping road, I breathed in the scenery and daydreamed of walking through the beautiful landscape.  This is my first tribute to 'Green Mountains' veiled in my ideal sky.

 Ready for gluing and then grouting.
Grouting - my favorite part =)
