the JCC show is up

This is piece number 13 out of 13 (my lucky number) and it is called "Opening".
The "History of Mosaics" presentation was last night at the JCC. It was the opening event for the mosaic show. I was so happily overwhelmed by the wonderful turn-out of people - a packed house. Thank you to all who weathered the cold and came to the opening!!!
The mosaic show is up at the St. Paul JCC and will run through Februry. This is the left half of it.
