Recycling, Upcycling Project for Goodwill & Art Center Sarasota

Painting on.....Number 4 of 4 so far. Check below for the progression, still a work in progress.


I will be in a show at Art Center Sarasota featuring recycled works of art from Goodwill Manasota. We take unloved pieces of art and give them new life. The exhibit will be up from March 17, 2016--to April 7, 2016 at the art center. Below is the one  I am working on.
I picked it because of the eyes and the lifelessness (don't know if that is a word) of the color in the face. I could tell it wanted to go home with me. So I am being the alchemist and transforming.

In progress...........the tears surprised me......did not know they were coming.......

Starting to add color

I have got joy, joy, joy down in my heart. I am in the process of building a web site. One of the questions as to my WHY was: why do you want one. My answer was to be able to reach out to others and share that we are one, you are not alone, art can heal.

I got an email last night that affirmed that this is happening. She told me how my paintings, my art has blessed her in her darkest hours. She is a blessing to me. That's what art does.
