This is a new mosaic that I finished yesterday.

I chose the name because it has two meanings.One is the commonly-known meaning: "alluring beauty and charm." The second meaning is less well known: "to cast a spell or put a hex on someone."

I think of glamour as also meaning "illusion." After all, the glamour we associate with actors and models IS an illusion - it's all makeup and airbrushing, smoke and mirrors.

I was recently in a situation where I believed an illusion. And so the idea for this mosaic came into my mind - a woman enamored with something that is only showing her what she wants to see.

Kim, another fabulous piece! They just keep getting better and better. I can tell that this one was particularly whatever illusion you are alluding to turned out to have a silver lining in the form of your art. Wonderful..wonderful!
