IF - Proverb

Dream Trees, 12" x 24", Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas (SOLD)

A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees.

William Blake, Proverbs of Hell, 1790

New Paintings!

It's been a while.

I finally got back in the studio and got some work done! And oh did it feel good.

Some good friends came to visit and wanted "Take a Look Around" (the painting on the left) but also wanted a second companion painting. So here they are together. I'm just getting ready to ship them off to their new home.

And these trees (below) are brand new. I seem to always go back to painting trees. These are completely different though. The colors are softer and I've added lots of mixed media elements.

Ever Heard of Plarn???

Plarn is plastic yarn you make from recycled grocery bags. And what do you do with it?

You knit with it of course!

Grocery Bag Bag
Pattern: Everyday Grocery Bag Handbag by Trina Brielle
Needle: US 11
Yarn: Handmade Plarn made using only the finest Walmart and Alberston's bags :)

This bag is made entirely from recycled grocery bags. It is 100% recycled and 100% recyclable. How cool is that?

I made the flower accessory using the basic singed fabric technique but I used all grocery bags. (Just be careful because they singe VERY quickly and can burn faster than fabric.)
