Terrific Trash to Become My Treasure!

Can you believe what some people will throw away?

I found this gorgeous living room table sitting on the side of the street in Burbank yesterday, made from heavy solid wood, and in perfect condition! I had to have it, and was instantly struck by the idea to paint a wonderful painting onto it…

I’ve always been into finding innovative ways to be more environmentally friendly in many areas of my life, and now as I embrace my inner artist more lately, I think about what I can do better in this realm. I’ve realized one of the easiest ways to leave a softer footprint is to re-use things, like incorporate repurposed objects into my art. I’ve been collecting discarded frames and have started repainting them in fitting ways to certain paintings. I’ve also started collecting random pieces of wood and palm leaves as a base for painting experiments as well.

So, when I found this huge wood coffee table I got so excited because it’s SO much better quality than most “trash”, like it was meant especially for me! At 36″ x 42″, it’s going to make an impressive painting centerpiece for a living room! There you have it, someone else’s trash is my treasure, and one day it will be the treasure of some lucky art patron.

Now, I just have to decide what to paint on the table, that’s the biggest decision!
