Walking Farther into the Mosaic

Making a mosaic design is the process of simultaneously entering the world of the design to discover what is there AND creating what is there.  Discovering and making, all rolled into one.  I made the design for our Feeding of the 5000 mosaic, but the contributions of others every step of the way has revealed more and more about who the people are in the story, as well as details of the location.

This morning, several of us spent a relaxing hour or so talking and adding layers of colored pencil to the figures in panel three.
