recycled art

For a while last summer I fooled around with a handful of laminate samples. I liked the fact that I could hold them in my hand, painting and decorating them, each one very different from the last.

They made a neat ‘calling card’ a memorable way to introduce myself and at the art show last year they were the center of attention, especially with the kids.

I gave handfuls to some homeless kids that were always bumming for money up at Wal-Mart. It was sadly a poor, but genuine attempt to teach them a shred of financial management. Plus, I told them ‘at least have something to give back to someone who helps and blesses you with food, cash or clothing. At least act like you’re trying.’ I know they did well with them and hopefully some seeds of achievement and success were sown.

Most cards were painted and lacquered. A little glitter here and there. But some, like the sea turtle grew from the finding of scrap metal, objects and doodads in parking lots and places where people drop their trash.
