I started this almost 3 years ago and got stuck and put it aside because I was unhappy with parts of it. And the back ground was very hard because I should have marked guide lines on the pot but didn't. In the last week I tackled the problems and made some changes and finished the picky tiles in lines background. It was definitely a learning experience, and will continue to be when I grout it in the spring as I am determined to use 4 or 5 different grout colors (outside!).
The whole thing is still sitting on a lazy susan, and the plate on top is not attached but I probably will use it so.
I was inspired by a beautiful luna moth that stayed for a full day on a telphone pole outside our house.
The green moth and the birch tree are the "fronts", the sides are a little boring. I will probably paint the terra cotta top and bottom edges, not sure what color yet.
And it will go on one of my porches as a little chair side table or plant stand.
Thanks for looking.
