Looking for a pattern

I'm interested in making a mosaic of a Mexican street scene but I have looked everywhere I can think of and can't find a pattern, or even something close I can later tweak. Unfortunately, I am not an artist in the sense that I can draw somwthing from my mind, so I do need a picture I can at least go from. Is there anyone out there that can help me? Thanks

Matte, sometimes doing an image search in google can help

RE: Looking for a pattern

Ditto to that. Just go to the Google homepage and click on image and type in mexico painting or some such, and you'll get something good I'm sure! I do all kinds of googles...ponds are my latest eye candy!!!lol!

RE: Looking for a pattern

I just chose the first one that came up on Google. Here you go.
Mexican Street Scenes

RE: Looking for a pattern

Thanks for the tips, there was a pretty good one there that maybe I can adapt to fit my needs. Still want to look further, maybe on Stained Glass sites (other than this one I mean). Has anyone tried to mosaic on top of plexiglass? This project will hang on an outside wall (in Mexico) with a light behind it. Should work, right?
Thanks again, love all your projects, I have done alot of mosaic work in Mexico but haven't any pictures. Better do something about that, I guess.
