“New Year’s Rose”, 2021, 6″ x 6″, stained glass
This old-fashioned rose bloomed in my yard in April. After the pandemic year, it was a welcome sign of a fresh and vital new world.
Fifteen years ago, I learned to mosaic from Laurel Skye an internationally recognized mosaic artist. This piece, however is influenced by Carol Shelkin, also an acclaimed artist, who refers to this mosaic genre as “painting with glass.”
