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...........
