I have been looking at this forum for a while now and have found the courage to attempt my first mosaic. I wanted to do a large outdoor panel for my garden but put it off. Glad I did because Hurricane Gustav came an would have destroyed it. So now that my patio is just about finished I decided to change where I wanted the mosaic and choose to do a 3' x 5' picture of a bird of paradise. I started a couple of days ago. I am working from a couple of pictures that I painted in watercolor. Please let me know what ya'll think of it and if you have any suggestions.
