Green Hills - Yellowstone, a framed stained glass mosaic 25"x49", 2018 ~Available
This mosaic was inspired by my first visit to Yellowstone in 2012. One day while driving to go hiking, this view caught my attention. We pulled over at a look out to admire the reflection of the landscape in a small lake that was as still as glass. We walked around and marveled at the serenity while little songbirds flew around us.
Photo I took at the lake.
The beginning of the mosaic. I used a light print our of my photo as a composition guide, while the rest of the map for my mosaic was in my head.
Phew ... the trees in this piece got to be pretty small which required a ton of time. It felt really good to be moving onto the sky.
The sky was my favorite part of this mosaic. I love this blue glass. With it and the pattern I created, I worked to capture the feeling of the bluebird sky wrapping around the mountain.

Grouting in black to accentuate the pattern in the sky.
