Rainbow Tree Mosaic

I have this shoebox lid that I throw bitty scraps into as I go. Crazy, but I can't seem to throw them away. It was getting out of hand. What to do?



Inspiration came from this little scene I sketched while in the car
rider line at my
daughter's school.


I whimsically called it Rainbow Tree but...it's not.

I just couldn't put the blue and purple bits in. I very much appreciate whimsy in other artists work, but have such a hard time straying from realism in my own. Hmmmm.


The thrifty in me was pleased anyway that the white bits left from the Dahlia Star clock worked nicely here as well as that I used up a variety of dark green scraps.
