Lake Powell

Lake Powell, stained glass mosaic on board, 9" x 18.5", 2009    ~SOLD
(A few close-up detail shots)

This piece was inspired by the magical imagery of Lake Powell located between Arizona and Utah. Its a reservoir that was created by flooding Glen Canyon. Below are a few photos (at sunrise, day time and sunset) I took of this incredible, controversial lake.

I took a bunch of in-process snap shots. These show how I build my mosaics on top of a rough sketch. As I work, I try to keep to my original idea - in regards to the color palette and patterns, but spontaneity always finds its way. The pieces already laid down, dictate how the mosaic will evolve. Often I am surprised to how it veers away from the initial idea. Its a great process of discovery and surprises.

Some of the process.

Shipped across the country to its new home!
