2009...Things Change

2009 has brought many changes to my life, but my dedication to my artwork has been my constant joy as well as my therapy. The end of a long relationship, a move back to St. Augustine, two new jobs...many changes! My website has brought me several sales, which has been a validation of my art as well adding a few coins to my "wealth". My most recent mosaic was something I thought about for almost a year. I asked a friend to pick up some coquina shells from Vilano Beach. Vilano is comprised of these shells, rather than the smooth sand of St. Augustine beach, although they are just a few miles apart. I spent many days searching and finding shark's teeth at the water's edge of this beach...not very often found on St. Augustine Beach. This is what I have attempted to capture in the piece "Walking Vilano". It measures 14" x 24" and is done on cement backer board. It contains thousands of shells and beads...and even a shark's tooth!
