6" by 4" - Dichroic glass, marble, smalti

This is attempt number two on this concept.  It still isn't exactly how I picture it.  I'm now thinking the true problem is the scale.  The picture in my brain probably can't be accomplished in a Mosaic a Day size, so if I want to do justice to this idea, I will need to go big.

Which brings me to another issue.  I'm thinking I may have to take a wee break from my mosaic a day-ing to work on something large.  I don't know what yet, but I've hit a point where any substrate over 7" by 7" makes me nervous.  This is not a good thing, so I need to tackle this problem head on at some point in the not too distant future.
