Hi everyone! It has been a while since I posted art on Friday...and technically it's not Friday anymore, but I won't tell if you don't.
I love mosaics. The fact that one can combine different colored textures and shapes together to visually meld them into a beautiful image is amazing to me.
I love drinking in the image from afar and then getting up really close and seeing ( and if I am lucky being able to feel) the imperfect tiles that created the perfect artwork. So today I'm posting a cool video of mosaics and they are made up of some very unusual materials...Enjoy!

On My trip to Washington DC we stopped by the largest Catholic church in the nation. all of the art work in the church was made up of mosaics. absolutely gorgeous!
This is an unbelievable mural in the front of the church. It is 3,600 square feet and it contains nearly three million tiles. Even though it is not my favorite depiction of Jesus (he looks too muscular and quite frankly a bit mean looking) I can appreciate the awesome beauty of the the piece itself.
Even on the ceiling there were gorgeous tiled mosaics to view and appreciate.
Every art piece was made of tiny imperfect tiled squares like these
Have yourself an amazing weekend and please keep praying for those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Many Many prayers are needed.
