Octopus Progress

A few days ago, I posted a photo of an octopus mosaic that I am working on (that post is here).

My studio is almost complete. All except for this bare spot on my wall.

The octopus is now all glued down and I am working on the water. Here is a progress shot from yesterday.

This is my first mosaic. It may have been wiser to start with something smaller. Nahhhh. 😀

My daughter, who is in high school and has done several beautiful mosaics in art class, got me started on this one and showed me how to nip tile. The mother-daughter project that I envisioned evaporated quickly, as she has other things she would rather do. But I am grateful for her help getting started on this.

I am enjoying doing a mosaic. It is kind of like a jigsaw puzzle that you make up as you go along.
