Since I did the Oops and don't have an artist featured this week, I decided to tell you of all the joys of my collection of art that wasn't or used to was but isn't now. HUH?
I adore junk store, thrift store, second hand store shopping. I have been recycling and redoing for more years than most of you are....you lucky ducky youngsters you.
One of my favortie things is to find paintings and reclaim them for more advanced "arting", mixed media or embellishment extravaganzas. None of these paintings are what I would call bad art, they are just not polished or ever been in a judged show kinda art.....and that is what makes me love them. They deserve adoration too.
I love to find winter scenes and play sparkle plenty with snow glitter, icicles and the old standby mica glitter. I also adore sea scenes where I can place mermaids and crab on the sand with shells and pebbles. But last week while shopping at GW imports as we call it at our house (goodwill for the uninitiated) we found a diamond in the rough of epoch proportion. This is the bestest of the best, the cream de la creme.
I have enlisted the imaginations of all the big and little ones at our house to tell me what we need to make this a seasonal masterpiece that we pass several times a day. What do you think? Have any ideas to share?
