Ceaseless

I’m back! Keeping the blog going on a regular basis seems to be my Achille’s heel this year! Thanks for sticking with me during the hits & misses.

So, back to finishing up the recycled/upcycled art pieces from last year. This piece, Ceaseless,  is mounted on an old LP.

Just like “Conjured” it was drawn on watercolor paper, painted on the reverse side and then the design was cut out with an x-acto knife.

After that it was mounted on the LP and details were added with ink and an old piece of jewelry was mounted in the center.

Ta-da!!

Coming up next is the last piece from my show of upcycled/recycled artwork and it’s a bit different from all the others. Stay tuned, it WILL be posted yet this week. 🙂

Continuum

This piece came to fruition after creating Ceremonial and Circadian, drawing from the rolled paper and the idea of creating a clock. It came together pretty quickly after creating both of those pieces!

From this pile of rolled paper I decided the layout for the piece and attached them all to the LP. To make the hands of the clock portion stand out I added the painted CD.

This was one of my favorite LP pieces and I’m happy to say it found a good home and was purchased by a fellow artist. Here’s a picture of the finished piece:

One more left, then one other piece from the recycled/upcycled show last year and I can start sharing some new work and ideas!

Conjured

So, yes, you guessed it. More art on old LP’s today. 🙂 This piece started just like the others:Blog, 2013-04-25 11.42.25

From that point it pretty much followed in the footsteps of “Circadian” with a mandala pattern on watercolor paper, painted, carefully cut and attached to the LP.

This piece is very bright, fun and lively!

Next post will be one of the last pieces of the art on LP’s and a combination of a couple different previous ones I’ve shared. Be on the lookout!
