A Mosaic of Beautiful Art

This weekend my husband and I went to the Geneva Arts Festival and saw an amazing array of beautiful work.

My favorite was the
mosaic work done by artist Linda Mix Yates. Her gorgeous mosaics are done in the tradition of picassiette, in which she uses broken plates and cups. Some of the pieces are more whimsical, while others are a fascinating study of color and texture. All of her work was exquisite!

these pieces make fabulous wedding gifts?

You can contact Linda Mix Yates
through her website or by emailing

You can also see her work in person at the Greenwich
Village Art Fair in Rockford on August 19 & 2oth. Be sure to visit Linda at the art fair - and tell her I said hi!
