Self Portrait № 2, in progress / by Jacqueline Iskander Mosaics

Lovely day in the studio yesterday: mosaicking and listening to 70s music, with the chimes and nature sounds coming in through the screen door, along with fresh air!

I'm working with the darkest browns and reds, although I am surprised at how light they look in this photo. Lighting!

I have not done a work in predominantly smalti in years. I am enjoying its incredibly unique reflective quality.
