Mosaic Monday

I'm taking the easy way out this week.
I made a mosaic of a painting I posted on Friday.
If you read this post back in September, then you know I am not comfortable painting buildings. I'm taking a watercolor class this month (oh, the joys of being retired!) and we learned how to paint clouds. I'm not really sure that I learned. I did watch & I did listen & I did try... you are not viewing my first attempts. This little boathouse is part of a yacht club & I have taken many pictures of it. So......I combined my fear of buildings with my fear of clouds to have a little stress with my latest painting. In the end, I like it and I don't fear buildings so much.
Clouds are another story.
More mosaics are here at Mary's. Mary's own mosaic are just gorgeous!
P.S. Stayed tuned......next week I have a give-away! My very first!
