Go green!



I know that there are many artists especially in Portland that are green artists. My main issue with using too much recycled material is the archival quality of the work. If the wood that is being used is water damaged or moldy then the painting wouldn’t last and the work would start to deteriorate. So I have been getting leftover wood from different places but the wood is brand new- but it’s left over. Does that mean it’s considered green or recycled materials? Since it’s new but it’s left over. A good friend of mine from my art group discovered these brand new slash "recycled" cabinet doors that were scraps. One person's garbage is another person's treasure. Pretty fabulous.

So this Friday at Muse- the auction is ending for an Artist a Day paintings. 50% of the proceeds go to helping buy school supplies for teachers. I can't believe it's almost Summer! almost June- ready for Summer!
