A couple of years ago a show of mosaics visited here on loan from The Vatican. The Old Ursuline Convent, in the French Quarter, hosted the show. Given that the mosaics were similar to what I’ve been doing with my dots, I figured I ought to make a piece to remind me of the show. The mosaics were all based on famous works. It was a way of preserving the imagery in case something happened to the original paintings.

acrylic on canvas, 5" x 5"

For this piece I took a small area of a mosaic of an angel and imitated the pattern. I used the colors I saw in the piece. Of course I stuck to making dots even though the mosaics are made up of squares. Following the same pattern proved a bit tricky for me.


  1. It still looks good, though. Reminds me of Summer & warmth, of bright, happy days.
