Trash to Treasure

The 2nd show hosted by ISM this month is tonight; the project is transforming something second-hand into something new. I chose to reinvent a couple old purses I found in my good ol' neighborhood thrift store.
And here they are...
Under Lock & Key

Something's Fishy [front side]

Who wouldn't want fishies, and a hook and worm on their purse? I know I do.

Here's the flyer. Rich Tuzon did an amazing piece, on a ukulele (which I hope he'll post on his blog today), and when we dropped of our stuff at the gallery, got to see some other clever reinventions other artists did. I think it'll be worth checking out, especially if you're in the area.

The Flight

This is a piece I did for the "Friends of ISM" show a couple of weeks ago. The branches are cut strips of paper and each bird is on a ripped piece of arches, pinned to the canvas backing. It was a lot of fun for me to do and I think I'll be doing a series of these based on this ripped & pinned concept.

Here is a closeup of some of the pinned birds.

And a closeup of the lone bird taking it's flight.

This bar was our last stop before heading to the airport to go home.
