Seeking Out Opportunities For My Art Within The Avenues of Recycle and Upcycle

Christmas season is truly here and I've been busily preparing for holiday retail placement and Christmas shows.  I've concentrated on my newest project of salvaging discarded art objects and reinventing them with Gesso and Watercolor Ground.  The process begins with the hunt for appropriate objects usually purchased from Goodwill, Salvation Army and Yard Sales.  Generally these items are just discards with slight imperfections.  After the original art, print, ink, etc., is covered I set out to create my original watercolors based on the object and how where it may be used with a potential customer's home art collection.  I challenge myself to think outside my normal art style and create for a vast audience.  So let the holiday shopping season continue...........

Sweet Angels
Never knowing where Angels pass their time,
I am safe just knowing when I need one she'll be with me. 
There are many angels in heaven that I share with family and friends
keeping us all safe and quite aware of their smiles and warmth on our hearts.
Be aware that your guardian angel makes life more comfortable as we pass the time.

Fall comes not clad in gray but like a seasoned champion in shades of aurelian, crimson and bronze. The winds and rain rustle through the dripping branches and all the brilliant tints of scarlet and gold change to hues of umber.  Oh, but the Pines still fragrant and verdant let me        know it is time to prepare my palette with deep ruby, copper and magenta for the sharing of our      thankful time together and the glory of the Christ season.  Art allows the sharing of love for all       seasons.  Ginny Brennan, Watercolor Artist ( - Ginny Brennan original art © - Ginny Brennan original art ©

Bidding Farewell To My Dear Friend Summer - Pondering On Our 2014 Fall

I've been reworking my website ( and came across my "Chef In The Woods Giclee" Painting from a couple years ago. Made me think of fall in Appalachia. 
 I am just beginning my second year back in the Pacific Northwest. 
Happy to be here, but "miss'in me" some 
South West Virginia.

I recently had an opportunity to do a little study of Japanase "Notan" art and this was my take.  I used Sepia and was quite pleased with my cityscape.  

Recycle/Upcycle Art  - my newest 2014 endeavor - has caused me to search high and low for tossed objected that can be revived with gesso and watercolor ground to make a statement for art in the home.  I am attempting to create original art that is recycled and upcycled as well as affordable for all to enjoy original art in their home and also serve a friendly gesture to mother earth.

Thank you for viewing my blog - come back at me with input which is extremely welcomed.  If you are an artist - keep at it and make yourself and others happy.  If you are interested in my art, that will make me happy, if you would like to purchase, just inquiry. Blessings on the winds to y'all.
