Here we are another summer in Santa Barbara upon us! I am also happy to share the latest commissions installed at the Goleta Medical Center Children's Clinic. Each of these mosaics were created with the kids in mind. I wanted to create coloring book style pieces. This way while sitting in a waiting room kids and adults alike could enjoy the colorful and fun under the sea theme. This is my second set of mosaics for a children's hospital or clinic. I enjoy creating for kids even if it means they to go somewhere not too fun.
These mosaics were created in record time as well. I had a deadline with so many plates spinning it was a small miracle they arrived on their deadline date. Aside from these two installations I also launched my latest business Mosaic Arts Online, the place for all online mosaic art tutorials. I was a presenter at the Society of Mosaic Artists conference in San Diego and was prepping for my annual Todos Santos Mosaic Art Retreat in Mexico. So to say the least it was a lot to get done in a short period of time but it all happened and it was all a huge success.
Now on to the next big thing, I will release three more videos by end of June 2016 and Mosaic Arts Online will continue to grow. Santa Barbara School of Mosaic Art has a whole new slew of workshops and I am working towards a great large commission to start soon. So I will continue to spin the plates and creating my mosaic art......till the next time friends! Cheers!
