IMA's Weekly Mosaic Workout Challenge

Institute of Mosaic Art's Weekly Mosaic Workout Challenge. We are challenging ourselves, and whoever wants to join us, to make a mosaic every week from June 6th to November 6th, 2014. 

More thievery.

Oops, I did it again! I let another Friday pass without posting a prompt and it didn't dawn on me until late in the day (and this morning was a whole other story.)  My mother is back from vacation next week and I intend to get back on track with these posts!

Week 12 - Inspiration is everywhere

Originality is the fine art of remembering what you hear but forgetting where you heard it. --Laurence J. Peter

Last week's prompt was about making a reproduction of a part of another mosaic artist's work. This week we're continuing on in that vein but looking beyond mosaic.  Pick an artwork from a non-mosaic artist and reproduce it in mosaic. Again, time is limited so choose something manageable!  What comes up as you translate from one medium to another? How does it change the piece? What works and doesn't work for you? 

Originality is nothing but judicious imitation. The most original writers borrowed one from another. -- Voltaire
