A New Character in My Work

Day Dream, stained glass mosaics on boards, (3 panels: 24" x 12", 18" x 24, 24" x 12"), 2009    ~SOLD

My landscapes are usually void of a figure. Months ago I've given myself a challenge to create an environment especially for a character. I began with the left panel as a vantage point. I created a fairytale community in the mountains which awaits the arrival of its first inhabitant. In the center is my girl, sitting among the hills, daydreaming of one day living in a quaint mountain town. In the right panel, behind the girl is a door that may lead her to where she wants to go when she awakes from her dreams.

Here are a few shots of the grouting process, which is what really completes the image. I never truly can imagine how the piece will look with all the little, fine, black lines created with the grout. It is always a great pleasure and surprise to do this final step!
