Creative Recycling

Creative time is in short supply at the moment as my boys are keeping me busy, but when I do escape to the studio I have so many ideas I don't know where to start! I counted that I had 15 pieces of work started but not finished today :-S
Here are a few small pieces I have been working on for the Alnmouth Arts Festival. I have been cutting and sticking, recycling old artwork and textile designs that I did years ago and have been collaging them into new pictures.

I have to say I have been having lots of fun with these pieces revisiting old techniques. I have been reading lots of Eric Carl books to the boys lately and I think his work has been making a lasting impression. I am looking forward to expanding this collection and incorporating some mixed media back into my larger paintings. 

Let me know what you think, its always good to have a bit of feed back on new work:-)
