Last night I was browsing modern mosaics and it brought back memories of my own artistic path. For me, the complex task of placing objects and color together either aesthetically or to tell a story requires a combination of mastery and artistry which I still enjoy.

Below is a snap-shot of what mosaic artists are producing today, a delightful combination of artsy and crafty style that is one of the earliest artforms still in existence world-wide.
