Pomegranates, le 8 Mai !

Today is the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. I just wanted to say it. A great number of people died on all sides. A lot of blood and tears were shed. We should remember and honour their lives and death.

My Pomegranate tree is progressing... Yesterday, I completed its blue background. Just this very background took a full 15 hours of work... Very tedious, but well worth the pain ! 

So the main pattern - the Tree itself, is complete. Truth is, the piece is not complete ! I still have to enhance it with the outside border of the niche: a floral vine with green leaves and branches, and red and cream flowers. 

The background of this vine will be of-white, contrasting beautifully with the blue background of the Tree.

Pomegranate should be complete in June, and flying to France later this summer.

I am a modern mosaic artist with a deep admiration for ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine Arts. You can see my own mosaics on my site at mosaicblues

    1. Thank you Helen. I am trying ! Little by little, I am getting better at it ! I first started to work with very heavy stones, now it is glass. Actually, what is very interesting is the contrast, not only between colours, but also between materials.
