A Fairy Tale Landscape for Kathy and Billy

Untitled, stained glass mosaic, 12" x 24", 2012   NFS
I created this mosaic as a wedding present for my best friend and her husband. It is a snowy mountain scene at the beginning of Spring with an abundance of violets shooting up in the valley of a mountain village. She loves fairy tales and mountains, especially snowy high peaks; I used that as the basis for my composition. She is also a collector of my work, so I knew that this would be a perfect present for her. For further inspiration I've used another mosaic that she already owns, I wanted this new piece to be a counter part of for it.  See the mosaic below.  In the above mosaic all the white circles, the palace, the blue windows in the left mountain and the blue circles in the sky are created with iridescent glass so they shimmer and change color in the light while in the mosaic below the sky is iridescent and has a similar effect.
