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.
