Mosaic Lady in Red

Wow, this is a spicy one!

I just love how the artist designed part of the shoes and hair of this sexy mosaic lady in red to appear out of the outline.

This would look great in an entrance in a single guy's apartment, don't you think?

Coming soon on Mosaicology

While I am working on other projects, I hate to see Mosaicology neglected. 

To keep the blog going, there will be new posts with less words and more pictures and of course more INSPIRATION.
So, stay tuned for posts that will trigger your creativity and spark inspiration.

PS: I may be having a guest blogger soon so that's another good reason to STAY TUNED for some new sparkle and glitter!

How (not) to grow an ancient mosaic in Dallas

What a weird title you may say. Please visit Bored Neoclassical Guy's Blog to read the whole post.  I assure many laughs. Oh, and by the way, the post is also available in Italian. I was only too thrilled to do the translation into Italian for Eric. I usually do not translate into Italian and I hope to have achieved at keeping the sense of humour Eric so successfully conveyed in his original text. That was my main concern.

Here's a quick excerpt:
I had been putting in way too many hours at the office over the past few months. Although it had been very profitable, I couldn't help but think of the work as too much of a tradeoff of my time preventing time for making art, not to mention the lack of sleep driving me to the point of delusion. Surely there are many artists probably going through exactly the same thing.

In questi ultimi mesi ho lavorato parecchio. Nonostante un guadagno significativo, non ho potuto non considerare il lavoro come un trade-off del mio tempo. Questa situazione mi impediva dal creare, per non menzionare la mancanza di sonno fino al punto di delusione. Sicuramente ci sono parecchi artisti che probabilmente stanno affrontando la stessa cosa.
