My sister, Joanne is an amazing Mosaic artist living in Eugene Oregon. She recently completed the installation of this beautiful lilies project which graces the face of a storefront in downtown Eugene. The owner of Harlequin Beads traveled to Italy where she was inspired by the mosaic works there. She contacted Joanne, who is a sought-after instructor of mosaic art, and together they conceived the lilies project. They were about to begin installation when I was last visiting. I saw the giant sections of lilies embellishing every flat surface in Joanne's studio, so I'm especially excited to see this completed project.
This storefront just happens to be very near the venue for my Son's upcoming wedding reception, so may serve as a backdrop for some wedding snapshots.
