The Snow Queen takes over the world or, at least, my mosaic


So the theme of this piece is the Snow Queen.  Do you remember that old Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale?  I'm not sure, exactly, how I'm going to tie it in as I'm reading the fairy tale right now.  My son, Charlie, loves that story and since I didn't do a graduation painting for him-it's going to be his.

When I finish all the edges I'll be able to post the final picture and tell how it ties in with the passage from the story.  Until then think of these crystal clear flowers as lilies floating on a pond that's streaming over the earth..........

Oh, just to remind you all of a few of my other heart mosaics I decided to post some.   All are named after famous literary heroines. The 1st one is Becky Thatcher from "Tom Sawyer" by Mark Twain.  The next 2 are labeled.  The 4th is Meg March from "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott.  The fifth is Olive Chancellor from "The Bostonians" by Henry James.  The 6th is Lucy Manette from "A Tale of 2 Cities" by Charles Dickons.  The 7th is labeled and the 8th is last but NOT least Scarlett O'Hara from "Gone with the Wind" by Margaret Mitchell.
