thank you Bigz. Yep that was part of the original idea with the different panels..to have a slight space between so that the look changes with perspective and different lights and shadows. also gives a slight 3d effect. I used cardboard on the Picasso piece but only held fast with the little 'command' strips so I can change it. (looks great head on but when you really look behind you see cardboard- lame) A friend advised me to use foam board, which is the plan for both angus and Freddie but in the meantime the command strips serve to hold the pieces in progress. I may need to move to thin wood board backer if these things get any bigger.

i guess one day I was dreaming of what I would want on my walls if I had tons of money and wall space. -voila!
...now to just make the money and buy wall space...

I was thinking something along the lines of mounting them to a wood frame ranging anywhere from 1/2" at its lowest point up to 3"at its highest. Then painting the edges of the wood frame. Have all of the pieces fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.

I want everybody to see another inspiring painting. This masterpeice is a one of a kind original oil painting by Morita Pena Mora. It is entitled "En busca de la vida" (In search of Life). I have spent hours of reflection pondering this work. It is for sale now, you may follow the link to the gallery ---> http://bit.ly/1qI9XMD
thanks very much ...unfortunately you are trying to sell art to a bunch of artists.
. I personally don't click exterior links but would love to see your work if you are willing to share it with us artists who are too broke to buy your stuff

Very cool.
I get the feeling of Freddy being liquid. I also enjoyed the progress, seeing him grow taller.

I'll fix it, just five me a cup of coffee and a ski-mask.

Now I know what you were doing. I like the effect of the perspective and the individual tiles.
