This is my response to the Ragtag Daily PromptManufacture.  I’ve finally come up with the an idea for my next mosaic.  After my last huge effort, I am looking to do something small, literally.  I like to make mosaics from my own photos, but in this case I won’t be able to.  I should be so lucky to see an endangered mountain pygmy possum!

I’ve previously made a mosaic of a spinifex hopping mouse (looking more like a dusky antechinus, but oh well, artistic licence).  You have to imagine moonbeams shining on it.  I sold this piece at the only market I’ve ever been to.  I’m kind of sad about that, but I am sure they are well loved.

If I get one more mosaic done before winter, I’ll be happy.  So there will be a little less posting, and a little more making over the next month.

Kind Regards

  1. I know what you mean about being sad about selling pieces. I used to do leadlight ( I may have mentioned that) and a couple of my pieces went to Alaska. I often wonder if they’re still appreciated. I also did quite a few doors and windows in our old house in Sydney’s Inner West, but that house has been completely changed and the windows are no longer there. I wonder what happened to them? Your little mice are so sweet and no doubt very intricate to complete. You must have nimble fingers

    1. Alaska is a long way for leadlight to go, Jane. it’s nice to think that that your leadlights may be sparkling on the other side of the world right now. And surely someone must have rescued your windows from the Sydney house. Crazy not to.
      PS. I don’t have nimble fingers. I just curse a lot. 🙂


  2. Another beautiful mosaic, Tracy! Your mice are so adorable and I´m sure very loved by their new owner! And now you’ve made me endlessly curious about that new creation of yours – mountain pgymy possum!!! Yay! Can´t wait! 😀
