I was an art education major in college and I loved working large. I am slowly getting larger with the colored sand and shells. I wanted to make mirrors and add items that are not related to the sea. Items that I would want to hang in my home. The octopus shown above is 2' x 2', and the sign "Herget" is 1' x 3'. My oldest son wanted our last name with teal to be displayed with his and his wife's wedding items. I look forward to working even larger.
