I might have suggested to a few people that I’ve done artworks (mosaics) of some Aussie birds and promised to post some photos of them. Lately though, I have been concentrating on dog mosaics, but I find myself returning to birds time and again. I have tremendous admiration for people who can photograph birds well, because I find it incredibly difficult to take a decent photo of my mosaics. They glitter and sparkle at all angles, hence it is virtually impossible to take a photo without being blinded by reflection. I love big bold colour, so I guess a little sparkle goes with the territory.
The first three birds I made as non-Xmas gifts for my family this year. The Canberra Ornithologist Group kindly gave me permission to produce artworks from their photographs.
And a few of my older pieces:
Have you made any mosaics? I would love to see them. Post photos of your mosaics in the comments so that we can all enjoy them. Can’t find the comments section? Keep scrolling past the social media icons and blog tags at the bottom of the post.
