Recycled Art

Each year RACC does this "Recycled Art Challenge".  I've never had a piece of art in it.  It's a juried exhibition where the artist is supposed to make artwork from recycled or recyclable materials... or you can do art with the theme of recycling.  Way outside of what I normally do... I give you "The Glass Balloon".  Made from a burnt out light bulb, a pickle jar, a toothpaste cap and the base is a scrap piece of counter top that would have been thrown out.  It was fun to create and hopefully I made it in the show.

The Queen

In 2010 I did a piece of art called "The Queen Bee"... even though it's one of my older pieces, it's still one of my favorites.  It was the first piece I did where the character was making eye contact with the viewer and I just like her face.  So... 4 years later I decided that she needed to make another appearance.  This piece is 24"x36", done in Adobe Illustrator and will be printed on canvas.  "The Queen's Dream"... my new favorite.  I have a feeling she'll be back again.
