Something a Little Different

I found the Talavera sun face in a shop in Cocoa Village and bought it knowing that one day I would use it as a focal piece for one of my mosaics.

Finally, about 3 weeks ago I came across some very colorful dishes in one of the thrift shops I frequent I knew immediately they would be perfect for this piece.

This mosaic mirror is colorful and bright and has lots going on in it.  I decided to just go for it!

I call it "Tears of the Sun" because of the facial expression, but it is by no means a gloomy piece.

Lovely, Christine! I could see this piece gracing a sunny veranda or porch with a Mexican or tropical theme. Now I want a touch of the sun, some tropical plants, and a cool drink. . . .
