I went to a Brazilian restaurant a few months ago and there on the wall was the most amazing mosaic piece of work I ever saw. I kept staring at it because I kept thinking of the time consuming work the artist put into it. It took my breath away. It inspired me to think about making my own mosaic work of art. I think making art is therapeutic and relaxing at the same time when one is challenged with the stresses of life. I would do it more for the pure joy of being meticulous with all the pieces and seeing it all come together at the end. Besides, who doesn’t like playing with puzzle pieces. I guess it’s like a metaphor for everyone’s life. You gather a piece here and there and at the end, it’s part of a very beautiful and intricate piece of your life. I would like to make one for my living room to hang above my couch and another one to just give away to anyone who wants it.
With that said, I also admire artists who make art and music not only to live off of, but because it gives them joy. I just want to remind you that your work is appreciated and all those hard and long nights of laboring away at your craft while the rest of the world sleeps….does make a difference. Keep up the great job!
