Violin Blank WIP

After seeing Slows beautiful mirror I knew it was just the inspiration for this violin blank I have had for years.
A dear friend and very creative mosaic artist in Australia sent it to me.
Then this morning I posted a comment in the conversation thread, and once again Slow was the motivation I needed to get started.
I may have to make a trip to East Texas!
Comments appreciated.
Sorry about the blue, I took it under my picnic table umbrella.
I plan to "grout" with beads and very small glass bits.
LOL after going back and looking I see my little sweat drops!
It's hot in Texas ya'll.

Hot diggedy dawg. That's WONDERFUL!!! I LOVE it. How unique is THAT???!!! I love mirror glass, and use it in just about every piece I make. This w/be GREAT grouted w/beads and things. BTW - On that mirror you mentioned, I used black silicon for the "grout". Boy, you put that together fast! Looking forward to more of your projects. This is GREAT!

Texas! I see you around here everywhere. LOL Aren't you glad you started on that? It has so much rhythm in the pieces already. It's really beautiful and it can only get better! Can hardly wait to see it as it develops!

RE: Violin Blank WIP

I have been everywhere lately. It seems to be motivating me.
I worked on it some, but will wait until the morning to post a pic. I want to clean it up nice n shiney before I take photo.
I'm not sure how much sleep I'm going to get tonight, it feels like one of those nights!
