    Default Stained glass mosaic of Flash...

    A friend of mine likes to work with glass. I've always admired her work via FB. I had asked her if she would like to give a black dog a try a few months ago - she has done mostly abstract and nature type of mosaics. It peaked her interest. Considering how hard it is to capture black dogs in photos, I could of only imagine how difficult it would be to try and capture them in glass. The first picture I gave her was too difficult so she picked another to work with...this is what she came up with. Pretty neat, eh??


    Oh how much I miss you Flash...you were an amazing dog to me. Rachael doesn't think she did you justice, but I think you would wag your entire body in approval!! I can't wait to see it in person, the photo doesn't really show it off very well.

    I like it Lainee, I think Flash would like it too.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
