Rainbow Fish is done!

Took me a while, but Rainbow Fish Clock is now complete. Inspiration for the background was a little slow in coming. I had been thinking of adding more detail- like swimming through sea grass or swirling water. I played with glass for a bunch of days but every time I added that detail, it seemed to take away from the fish. So, sweet and simple, I used that blue/white streaky glass I had (previous post) and did a random placement of triangles. I also did a subtle frame. The framing has the added benefit of no tiny pieces of glass at the vulnerable edge.

At the moment this guy is living on my lanai and I just might keep him.

This clock is unavailable, but see my available clocks in my Etsy MosaicSmith shop.

If I had a lanai, I'd keep him (or buy him).Sorry, the winter blues are setting in already.
Beautiful Work!
