Reclamation projects

By now you are familiar with the multitudes of yupo backgrounds that reside under the bed
in the front bedroom.
This was a project to use some of those.
Am not sure if it is done or not.
I'll probably hide it for a few months and then take another look.

This was a weave using strips of old discards.
I discovered Rosie Kaplan on Facebook and she does some amazing circular weaves.
Couldn't figure them out but did come up with this .

And last but not least,
this was a background and I cut out stencils of the flower and the hummingbird and put them where the colors worked best.  I rolled it with green acrylic.  YUK it was way too green.   Another home made stencil of a picket fence (reversed) and I rolled it white.  Done, I think.
Happy PPF


  1. Weaving is a great technique, and you do it well, as does Rosie K. Love the painting with the flower and fence, very cleverly done. Thanks for your kind words on my blog, you are so tight in what you said! Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

  2. Love all these pieces, great design!

  3. Very pretty! I think your weave looks gorgeous and I especially love that pretty flower. It looks like a hibiscus to me, so lovely with the warm colours.

  4. Love the hummingbird piece. The picket fence did the job of toning down the green, but I love the green as it is.

  5. Wonderful Art pieces.
    Happy PPF ❤

  6. Great idea to use the picket fence! Love the hummingbird, as well as all the different colours in your weave.

  7. You definitely put your backgrounds to good use!
