Hi Friends.

I recently ran across this "Summer in the South" meme and thought it was perfect and true!
It's already July but we have a ways to go and I hope you are enjoying your Summer so far!

What's new?

I've been bitten by the flower bug and have been creating flower mosaics lately. So far all the flowers have been very colorful and may not be an actual flower you could name, instead most are free form "suggestions" of flowers which fits in perfectly with how I prefer to work. I love to sketch something and then fill in as I go and not be too precise about it!
Right now I have one mini flower mosaic remaining on the website but anxious to start making more. 
The first flower mosaic I made showing work in progress and the finished product. Check out the video of this mosaic.
Video and still shots of the most recent flower mosaic.

Speaking of videos, I recently reached a milestone of 100 Youtube subscribers which made me eligible for a custom Youtube URL. Thank you!
It's certainly not huge by any stretch of the imagination but I was super excited and I appreciate the support! This means I don't have a URL with a loooong string of random letters/numbers that you are assigned when you create your channel.
Click the link if you would like to visit my channel or subscribe which just means you'll get an email when I add a new video. :)
I've made a couple of mini flower mosaics too!
fishing boats mosaic
This is a recent commission of fishing boats. It was large at 24x24 and unlike any mosaic I've done. I was actually sorry when it was complete because I really enjoyed working on this one! See the video too!
The pet portraits have been popular and they make great gifts!
Below are a few of the latest examples of mosaic pet portraits that are based on your photo.
The last row shows a mini colorful dog along with a mixed media piece of a
frolicking dog on the beach playing with seagulls. The dog and seagulls are mosaic with a hand painted textured background for the beach!

Western Lake 30A art
This recent mosaic is of Western Lake down the road from me here on the Gulf Coast. Western Lake is a Coastal dune lake and they are quite rare. This particular view of Western Lake has been captured hundreds of times by all kinds of artists and I wanted to create a mosaic version! See the video.

Although I was capturing a local landmark, the trees, sparkling water, setting sun and peaceful clouds could easily remind you of any lake scene. There are also touches of iridescent glass to add extra sparkle to the water, a perfect accent to your lake or beach home!
I've been throwing around the idea of creating an online mosaic class! I get so excited about it and then a little overwhelmed but, I can't stop thinking about it... which means I'm probably going to have to do it haha! 
Let me know if it's something you might be interested in.

Christmas update

I've had several emails already about the painted and mosaic coastal style Christmas ornaments. Since it's July, I would normally be getting started on creating them but I have decided I will not be making the coastal ornaments this year. 

However, I do hope to have lots of small mosaics available that will be perfect for gift giving along with a holiday gift wrapping option...because who wouldn't love a little art for Christmas!? :)
That's all the news for now.
