Too many posts from me lately, ladies and gentlemen. Not sorry. Today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt is masterpiece. I thought I would join in, because I can. I’ve written some stories and very bad poetry in the past, and dabbled in mosaics. Not every piece has to be a masterpiece. In fact, most of my written pieces are full of grammatical and spelling errors, but you probably already know that. The moral of this story is go where your heart takes you (including to Yass to buy a raffle ticket). Take that logic!
Here’s my Finnish Lapponian Dog mosaic of which I’m very proud. That’s allowed, isn’t it? Months of work were involved so it was very satisfying when I finally got the last tile stuck down and the grouting (approx 5 different colours) finished.
And for a bit of cross-promotion, see my post How I Found My Inner Visual Artist. It was the second post I did after I started the blog and I really had no idea what I was going to do with this strange blog thing.
I haven’t done any mosaicing for months. The smoke and heat here in the Canberra region have not been conducive. This week looks like it could be a good mosaicing week if the smoke blows in the other direction. The last mosaic I completed was in November last year. It was my mountain pygmy possum.
My mountain pygmy possum is currently being raffled by my friends at Trader & Co, which is a cafe in Yass, Australia (another blatant promotion for Yass and my friend’s cafe but it is for a good cause). Yes, poor poss lives (still?) in the fire-affected areas. The raffle will be drawn next Saturday, 8 February. Few of my readers live in the Canberra/Yass region of Australia, but I know that some of you have friends that do. Small world. Maybe you could mention the raffle to them? They could go for a coffee there and buy a raffle ticket ($5 each). Our goal is to raise $500 for Bush Heritage Australia (an organisation which purchases properties for wildlife conservation). Many of their properties have also been hit by bushfires in the 2019/2020 summer.
Talk soon. Mosaicing to be done and coffee to be drunk.
