At the start of the summer months I was asked to participate in this wonderful community event. In fact, many local artists ranging from school age to ...well, lets just say some of us have been out of school longer than others... were asked to join in this puzzle painting project.
Similar to a puzzle, a mural mosaic begins as a very large board. This pre-painted board was cut into 44 tiles. Each participating artist received a tile and were asked to re-paint within the values and tones presented on the tile in however way their creativity led them. We did not know what the image of the combined finished tiles would make..... and so the 'unveiling' begins...
The presentation began with a word from the Westlock Art Club's president - Guy Gokiert. He thanked Maureen Flinn, a local artist who was instrumental in making this entire project come together.
That's Marilynn Jefferey on the left and Kathy Nelson on the right... both wonderful fellow artists!

A hockey player is fitting for the wall of a sports complex.
Notice the cutie in the corner looking waaaaay up!
This is the left foot of the player with some of the stick.
Each tile has unique smaller images painted into them.
Notice the horse head, the little piglet, even the roosters to the left.
Did I mention this is a farming community? :)
It's interesting to see that the church is the top of the skate boot. and the angel, the sock.
