Recycling

In the prep for having my sister here for the week-end, I have up-ended the apartment to find places to store art that I did not want on the floor, and rearranged the walls to accommodate more of the recent work that hasn’t sold.

I have found canvases, in the process, that have images that do not work. Bonus!!! I tend to get like a mother when I paint something, only to realize that if I saved all of these children….landfills would overflow.

Let the repainting begin. An 18″ x 24″ canvas has a coat of Zinc Oxide. There are canvas panels waiting for me to wipe off their original images.

Canvas panels that I inherited that will be repainted that fit behind.
