Several years ago I was asked to have a cast made of my head for a project. The details are unimportant - the artist gave me the plaster cast and my husband often referred to it as a "death mask." A few months ago I had the pleasure of meeting mosaic artist Linda Zeien, http://skullsaics.com. I asked her if she would be willing to take on my "head" - she did and the results are above, Josi Under Glass. Check out her website - her work is brilliant!
Is there anything better than growing pansies, or for that matter painting them, in January? Their little faces are so happy and with this recent cold spell in Arizona - we need all the smiles we can get.
