Artistic Recycling

My new favorite medium! It's painstaking work that requires the patience of a saint to complete but is a very rewarding journey. I get all of my magazines from offices or friends, they would have been thrown out, lost in a mountain of trash. Sometimes I use pre-cut squares but the majority of the time I find the color I need and cut the shapes as I go. It's a lot like using a paint palette.
To save time I have a filing cabinet with folders of torn sheets organized by color, without that I would go mad trying to finish a project. Well, that's a little bit of my process, can't give all my secrets away. ;)

Love My Girls

My girls and I don't always get along, I've lost some hair and gained a few wrinkles because of some of the crazy things they have put me through. They've driven me up a wall more than a few times, given me this face O.0 plenty more times but that's just part of raising kids. I think they are growing into strong, beautiful, smart young women and each day they manage to make me laugh and smile (and shout and cry and run for cover....). They are the reason I still kept on drawing and painting through the years, despite having little time to devote to it. They have always been so inspiring to me and continue to be my favorite subjects. And of course I get a kick out of having a little fun at their expense. They're so use to it by now it's like oh look mom's drawing another silly picture of us-whatever! :D Thank you kids for being so awesome!!
