Mixed it up today with my mother the mixed-media artist, who taught me how to create a mosaic. I'd show you the result, but it's not done yet. So you'll just have to trust me when I tell you it's a thing of astonishing beauty. If you squint.
In lieu of that, here's a picture of Mom's work instead, which she'll be selling at the upcoming Artisan Invitational Show at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral November 8-9th. Her name is Megan Garcia, but she'll happily be your Guru Mom, too.
Working on one reminded me how satisfying it is to do a right-brained visual art project, a welcome respite from all of my left-brain blather.
