Recycle Your Canvas

Times change, art abilities change, ideas change. My goal this month was to clean up the crap shack which is full of old art, things to add to art and more. Your basic spring cleaning thing. The goal was to recycle/repaint some old art to bring it up to a more updated look and to have one month where I didn't buy a lot of art supplies.

This is the only one I have photographed so far but here are more that will be in enewsletter May 1st.

Alternative Art Surfaces

My work and new book, Alternative Art Surfaces, has just been featured on Cloth, Paper, Scissor Today.
Also, Robert Burridge mentioned my other book, Surface Treatment Workshop, on his blog. Always a thrill to be recognized.

Fun with Acrylic Skins

I have spent several months playing with acrylic skins and pours. I love the effect but hate the drying time due to my lack of patience but I find if I have a lot of projects to work on that it is not so bad. They tend to stick together until they are aged so store between butcher paper or wax paper. This delicate piece of acrylic was die cut with a die cut machine by Tim Holtz.

Pours are so beautiful and I love how they evolve as they dry. This piece has layered transparent and opaque pours.
