I've been in a mosaic frenzy lately.
I've made several octopus surfboards in this wonderful red and teal
color combo over the last year... that I realize I'm just now blogging about.
I adore octopuses and I love these colors together.
I still offer this design but wanted to create a more versatile octopus
that could be hung vertically or horizontally.
This is the new octopus surfboard design I came up with.
And I think he looks great hung in either direction.
See the video.
Oh yes! Forgot to mention, I have created a YouTube Channel!
I've been using short videos on Instagram here and there to share current work
and love the way videos can capture detail that photos
sometimes can't. I figured I would expand on that and add short clips
of current artwork on my own YouTube Channel.
While I was in octopus mode, I decided to retire my previous
octopus designs and create something new.
The first one I made was in a beautiful teal and purple glass color.
This one has sold but you can still view the video
I used the same pattern to create a blue/green mosaic octopus.
See the video of this octopus .
This mosaic octopus is large, about 34" wide and looks great in a coastal setting,
bathroom or anywhere you need a one of a kind piece of octopus art ;)
Since I was in the mode of revamping designs, I also retired the previous
sea turtle surfboard design and created an entirely different version.
This sea turtle mosaic depicts two sea turtles swimming in beautiful Caribbean
blue water with ribbons of kelp or sea grass. I love how it turned out.
For the fins and head, I use broken tempered glass,
it's perfect for this application and gives a great scaly look
See the video of this surfboard.
I actually created these two mosaic turtles a while back
before I made the new sea turtle surfboard.
This turtle has sold but the other style is still available.
I used the tempered glass again on the fins and head.
I'm thinking of creating more pieces using the tempered glass,
it's so cool and fun to work with.
I tried to create dimension on this piece using lighter and
darker areas of the glass and I think it gives it a great look.
This swimming sea turtle mosaic is available in my shop.
I used the WallApp tool again to place this turtle in a
virtual room. It really helps you see the scale of a piece of art.
Thank you so much for visiting and reading about my mosaics!
