Recycled Art With a Function

That's  what  I've  been  doing  these  days--taking  my  art  and  making  some  new  art  from  it.  A  couple  posts  back  I  talked  about  my  latest  poppy  painting,  but  I  didn't  stop  there--I  made  another  one--
 
 
And  since  I  had  another  show  to  get  ready  for,  I  decided  to  do  more  with  these  poppies,  and  something  that  I  knew  would  appeal  to  shoppers--
 
 
 
What  else?--but  a  mirror--always  a  favorite  of  the  customers.   But  I  didn't  stop  there  with  these  pretty  flowers--
 
 
.....a  new  box--not  only  are  these  art  pieces,  but  like  the  post  title  says--they  have  a  function  to  them,  which  people  appreciate.
 
So  then  I  went  back  into  my  'archives'  of  art  and  found  this  piece--
 
 

.....thinking  about  a  mirror  again...
taking  little  snippets  and  making  a  new  scene...
 
 
 
--and  even  the  sun  is  from  another  art  piece  of  mine  that  I  made  a  while  back.
 
So  I  took  all  of  those  pieces  with  me  this  last  weekend  to  my  show,  and  I'm  happy  to  say  that  they  all  SOLD!   Even  these  2--
 
 
 
So  happy  to  know  that  these  have  all  found  their  homes.
 
NOW--time  to  get  back  to  my  studio--one  more  show  for  this  season!

No wonder they sold. They are gorgeous. The poppies are so striking and bold...love 'em. What a wonderful way to reuse art from previous pieces. I'm heading to the basement to rethink a couple :)

Love them all. I love how you print off copies of your original paintings and then use them on new pieces - brilliant idea!
