Happy New Year to everyone. I know, I know, usually a new year means new everything, resolutions, ideas, artwork, etc etc and that of course is all still true however, sometimes it really behooves us to review and revamp older work as well. After all I'm learning once a piece of artwork finds a new home, what's left is the image and that is of course, still the property of the artist (in this case me) so why not put that image to good use. Waste not want not....right?
This ceiling tin for instance is something I painted years ago. It has long since gone to a new home, (it lives in Korea now) so all I'm left with is the image. This is my favorite rose painting that I've ever created though so I would like to use it for other purposes.
Chris reworked some things on it today and made it high resolution and framed it nicely for me , blocking out the majority of the tin and focusing almost entirely on the roses instead. I'm thinking this design could work on cards as well as tile trivets. The uses might actually be endless, more than I can think of right at this moment anyway. It might actually be a good idea each week or two, to go through artwork that has long since flown the coop, that you might have even forgotten about and rework it for a different purpose.
