Art: Blue Comet  - (Sold) by Artist Dorothy Edwards
This piece was part of the "my Atlantis" mosaic art show in San Francisco on July 30, 2005 and received an Award of Merit!.

I am often inspired by heavenly bodies and science fiction novels. This piece was inspired after the Hubble's telescopes recent astonishing photos. I was especially enchanted by the spiral arm galaxy and had attempted to design a mosaic inspired by it. However, the design just wouldn't come to my satisfaction but I continued with the astronomical idea.

This mosaic was made with Van Gogh glass, black iridescent glass and blue iridescent & stained glass. For grout, I used a white sanded grout colored with purple acrylic paint. This resulted in a pastel purple grout. While the grout was wet, I dry brushed gold paint pigment through the Van Gogh glass lines.
