    The surfboard project... a mosaic made with plates, cups and dishes!
    The Mistlin Gallery's new show is called Summer Splash. I made some new pieces for it, including this surfboard. It is almost entirely mosaiced with dishes and glass bowls.  I want to show you how it looks, and here is the video! Hope you enjoy!

    the lamb project.. buttons are fun!
    I enjoy finding shapes, usually made of wood. They languish in estate sales, thrift stores and flea markets. No one wants them anymore. Maybe the paint has faded, they are no longer whole or they are downright ugly! None of that matters in a transformation! The link below is to a you tube video I made showing how to put together a button lamb.  Hope you enjoy!
  3. After I finished this piece, I sold it the next day at a christmas fair.

    The giraffe .... trash to treasures!
    What would YOU do with this fellow? I found this homely fellow in a thrift store, and bought him for a $1. He was transformed, and I chronicled it on my YOU Tube channel. Take a look!

    The surfboard project
    One of the best part of making repurposed art is FINDING things to re-imagine. I enjoy the hunt. Whether it is a garage sale, yard sale, thrift store, estate sale, I love to look. I do a quick walk around of a place, then zero back to certain things, if something was interesting. On one such hunt I found in a corner of the very last vendor stall in a large thrift store a 3.5 foot tall surf board. It was painted and it was a great wooden shape. Such a find! And $10. SOLD! It went home with me
