“Lavender Fields”, 2021, 6″ x 6″, smalti, malmischiato, filati on watercolor substrate.
I am inspired by nature, color and memories in my mosaic work. “Lavender Fields” fills the bill on all counts: the smell of gently blowing lavender, the gorgeous purples and lavenders of eco smalti I recently discovered, and the look of the waving fields of lavender I remember from time spent in France. The technique was inspired by a recent workshop, and I could not wait to just dive in! The colors-well, they are my favorite, greens and purples.
