Day 2, mosaic installation

The between the heat and the weight of the tiles....
We are all very tired. Things are going well some mistakes have been made and tile was pulled repositioned but all is well tomorrow the last layers, cleaning and grouting begin!

See me kissing the wall and my "sister" Charlene down below standing around as usual...

Day 1 installation

It's been a very intense three weeks and we finished the mosaic! So now it's installation time, of course I had no time to shoot pictures while we were working so you are not seeing photos of the 10 amazing teens I have had the privilege to work with, maybe tomorrow. We installed half the mural today and I hope to finish tomorrow and then grout and clean for two days.

And it begins!

It's been an incredibly busy and HOT summer so much to talk about I am only going to talk about the project of this week. I am so lucky to be working with 10 young artist apprentices they are wonderful! We are building a mosaic for a local teen center down the street from us. It's a 25 x 12.5 wall so pretty big we started on Monday here is the sketch before I painted it and changed its far more complex and colorful.

Much more to come,
the first 12 square feet were completed today!
