My Mosaic Wall – Graduation and Rainstorms

Once I finished the dolphin, a coworker of mine said it would be cool if the bottom of the water, under the dolphin, was storm clouds and there was a rainstorm below. That seemed like a great idea to me.

You have to look closely to see the raindrops within the gray sky. The people to the left are: my boyfriend (he’s got the blue eyes) and me with the orange dress and brown hair. To the right we have my daughter’s boyfriend, with his beard, and my daughter, with her long hair. We’ve all got umbrellas and the kids are riding their longboards.

Months later when my daughter graduated from college, I surprised her with Graduation Abby. I drew this one ahead of time with my fantastic drawing skills. I gave the mosaic Abby a bunch of balloons and have her standing in sea glass since she lives by the beach.  I used black grout dye to draw in lines for her diploma. Because of COVID-19 she had a virtual ceremony so we live streamed her graduation.  I’m proud to say she now has her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from California State, Channel Islands.

Here’s a quick pic of the grout and adhesive
