Redeeming the Discarded

44″ x 54″ Tempura paint on cardboard.

We found the untitled work in the garage when we bought this house. Wrapped in black plastic, it leaned against a wall with other leftover materials and bric-a-brac that we inherited. I was thrilled to discover it, and immediately moved it upstairs to my work space for safe keeping and daily appreciation. Whomever the artist was, we shared in the value of redeeming what would have otherwise been discarded, destined for the landfill or recycling center.

Spontaneous Landscape No. 2. 12″x10″ mixed media on paper.

My attempts at converting reusable material into works of art doesn’t always result in a piece worthy of framing, but the process is cathartic.

Be well, stay well.
