Working On The Piece From The Post "Work In Progress"

I was blessed with, a much needed, day off today. I read some beautiful excerpts from 'A Course In Miracles' first thing this morning.... and my day is ebbing and flowing leisurely. Yesterday I 'stumbled' on a big, heavy bag of forgotten mosaic tiles and glass pieces. I bought them over four years ago at my local Dick Blick, and barely used them. Turns out, that the glass pieces are exactly what my work in progress needed along with a beautiful ribbon.

The colors are just jumping off each other and the texture is pretty cool. I started that piece last weekend with an intention for an exploration in textures. I just love the journey.

The gluing of ribbons and glass is very tedious, so it will be a while before all pieces are permanently in their places. The work is flowing, as I found an old CD titled "Forest Piano" by Dan Gibson - HIGHLY RECOMMEND, especially for us city dwellers, it's quiet magical.


  1. Hi Tatianna,
    Thanks for visiting my blog. I left you a long comment on the previous post about Julia Cameron and The Artist's Way. Somehow it got lost, groan. One of my favourite JC quotes goes something like this - small do-able actions daily add up to quite a lot. The Artist's Way helped my creativity and productivity so much its really quite astounding.

  2. Hi Tatianna,
    I love your piece here. The glass and tiles and beads really make this pop out. Like my friend Uta says (and I too left a comment on previous post here) Julia Cameron's books have been life saving for my art. They are magic to the soul.
