3 Cups of Coffee
This is a fun piece I did using recycled products and items to create this art.  The birds, cups and heads are all made from recycled linoleum that I paint.  I am having lots of fun using this as an art medium.  I started this piece out by using an old kitchen cabinet door that I prepped and painted a nice red.  The red paint was from one of those on sale sample paint containers at Lowes.  I always pop by the paint sale table and see if there are any colors that I can pick up.  It's an economical way to buy paint.  I stenciled the numbers on in black and then added the elements of recycled linoleum art.  I decided it needed a fun border, so I started out with white polka dot,s which led to red polka dots and then I added  circles cut from book pages.  Then to tie in the black birds I added the black painted stripes.  And then I decided I was done.
This will be one of the pieces that I put in the upcoming show in March at the CCAH gallery.
More to come.
