November 3rd – Although, I am still working on the stained glass mosaics, finishing two this past month, I discovered two paintings that for some reason were misplaced and forgotten. One is the Red Pony, a work on paper and the other is the Dove, mixed media. These recently discovered paintings are part of my “lost and found department”. To see full images of the paintings and mosaics, please click on the pictures below.
October 5th – This past month, I finished a small series, three mosaic pieces, called the Polish Horses. The mosaics are set in older, stoneware plates, made in Poland fort Crate & Barrel. The wide white rims with the blue trim frame the art. To see full images, please click on the pictures, below.
August 31, 2017 – For the past month, I have continued to work with the dinner plates (both with the red and yellow rims) made in Italy for Crate & Barrel. The bold colors of the rims surround the mosaic, enhancing the art. To see larger images of the art, please click on one the images below.
August 3rd, 2017 – Older, used dinner plates, small or large, form an excellent base for bold mosaics. The rims of these colorful plates frame the art and become an integral part of the mosaic. The scratches and nicks on the rims, adding patina, make the piece more unique. To see larger images, please click on one of the images, below, in the gallery.
July 6, 2017 – These small, stained glass panels, abstracts, are works in progress. They are a first in a series of abstract compositions. The color and texture of the glass mixes with natural light during the day and ambient light in the evening. As the light changes, the paintings change.

June 1, 2017 – This colorful mosaic is set in a 45 year old serving bowel made by Fitz & Floyd. It is an elegant porcelain bowel with a handsome, light brown rim with blue trim. The rim frames the mosaic and becomes part of the art. The bowel is in good condition, but as expected, there are signs of usage which add to the patina and character of the mosaic.

May 4, 2017 – The stained glass window, “Linda’s Window”, is in its new home. It is 16″ x 8″ and was designed to catch the early morning light and the light at sunset. To see larger images, just click one of the photos, below, in the gallery.
