Unsure if my efforts to save the mosaic would be successful, the day before the commissioned art was to be presented I did this painting to fit a frame I had on hand, for insurance. I presented both portraits to Bob. He seemed to like them, as much as anyone ever seems to like their portrait.

My first mosaic. The image resolves a little better the farther away you get...ideally, a next door neighbor could hang it at the far end of their house where it's visible through a window. A lot of mistakes and a flawed result. Note to self: grout will stain porous pea gravel - seal it before grouting; besides smelling awful, muriatic acid bleaches gray grout to a putrid yellow (I was tring to remove the grout from the stones); staining the bleached grout with acrylic washes almost works - again, the farther away you get.
