Canada 150 Mosaic

On Friday morning I went to the Enjoy Centre to paint my tile for the Canada 150 Mosaic Mural for St. Albert, Alberta.  Our group was tasked with painting a tile for the blue background.  I decided to use this picture, from our recent trip to Jasper, as my inspiration.

It has been many years since I played around with watercolours but I’ve never used acrylics.   There were some very talented artists there so it was a little intimidating to say the least.  Here is my finished tile.

I went back this afternoon to see the finished mural.  I was amazed to see how it all came together to make this beautiful 8′ x 12′ mural.

I searched and searched but I couldn’t find my tile.  I thought to myself oh no….it was so bad that they couldn’t use it.  But alas, I finally found my tile.  It is 14 rows up and 7 rows in from the bottom right hand corner.

  1. Your tile looks great, and fits perfectly above the flowers in the mosaic.

  2. Looking good. Another talent you are awesome at. Looks like your picture. Another avenue for a creative genius.
