“Art is not painting what you see, but what you make others see.” Edward Degas
Yes!! I searched long and hard to find a way to incorporate recycled materials into my art and finally found it! These 3-D paintings are full of whimsy and beauty, created by layering paint, gel media, and recycled water bottle pellets and flakes (PET or polypropylene). The layers create a 3-D effect, with the objects extending out from the canvas, becoming a sculpted painting.
