It's a beautiful day here in Bristol, UK today - our back door is open and the dog is snoozing in the sun!
As a small business, it is sometimes quite hard to keep the momentum going and not getting in a rut, so I am always on the look out for new ideas and projects. Mosaics are so versatile that there are many avenues open to me.
My latest step forward is this. A friend suggested that I have my mosaics, especially the larger ones framed. Perhaps in the past, I wouldn't have had the confidence to consider this, but now I feel my pieces are ready for it, and it feels like a very exciting and important step forward.
I have always tried to see my mosaics as works of art - I paint with tiles - so to have them framed feels like paying them due respect. My work is rapidly developing and it feels the right thing to do. I'm not sure about framing all of mosaics, or where this will lead, but it feels like one of those important moments.
Here is the first one framed for the Jane Reeves Gallery www.janereevesgallery.co.uk , and I think it sets it off quite nicely! What do you think?
