A little something for Spring--a rare (for me) white bleeding heart. Took this photo in 2008 when it was blooming in our garden. We had just moved in at the end of Winter. Had no idea there was a white version, and for a moment I could imagine how Darwin felt. Alas, an over zealous weeder may have ripped it out later in the summer. It's one of those unsolved mysteries.
Have also uncovered a few photos of some of my older pieces and have added them to their appropriate gallery pages.

In concluding this post, want to put in a plug for my friend, Rick Shelley, who is holding a one-day mosaic workshop on Saturday, April 30th, 10:00 to 4:00 p.m. at his Baltimore, MD studio.
"Cut glass into squares, triangles and other geometric shapes. Use gold and silver leaf on clear glass, create glass gems with iridescent backings, grind glass into circles and ovals, learn reverse transfer method, then create a mosaic or two." Bring your lunch. $75 includes materials. If interested you can email Rick at: firstname.lastname@example.org www.rickshelley.com
Here are some photos I took outside his studio recently which only hint at the beautiful things inside:
