About the Mosaic

16″ x 20″ x .5″ on foamcore board, this mosaic was made in December of 2010. This is Ollie, my 2nd cousin’s brindle Boston Terrier. He is a great dog, but I had a tough time getting him to sit still for a picture. So, we got the treats out and this is the end result. Getting the brindle markings was a good challenge. I used Trident orange gum wrappers over the the layered brown labels. The gum wrappers are translucent and with the glue, I was able to either press down the gum wrappers or lightly drape over the brown labels to create some quick transitions. So it seems this is a popular dog, as I was asked about creating a mosaic of another pet.
