Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety Jig!

My Trash Bubbles, published in the Winter Issue of GreenCraft magazine, arrived back at Piney Creek Acres over the weekend.From GreenCraft

As I unpacked them and photographed the pieces, I tried to think about what to do with them next.

The vinyl enclosed 45, You Are So Beautiful: Solar Disk Holism, was originally created for the 2012 Solar Disc Festival, only the festival was over by the time I got around to finishing it. (That’s what happens sometimes.) Subsequently, it has been promised to another Trashpo contemporary who loves vintage vinyl as much as I do, Neil Gordon of Connecticut.

Solar Disc Holism

This wasn’t my typical Trash Bubble. The cracked 45 was essentially trash, but I just couldn’t bring myself to throw it away. Encased in clear vinyl and punched with two sizes of holes at irregular intervals, it became another animal entirely. You Are So Beautiful… I can’t help but wonder what Joe Cocker would think.

Below are the other, more traditional Trash Bubbles which appeared in the four-page spread.

You can read more about these pieces in the Winter 2013 Issue of GreenCraft magazine, on stands now.

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!

GreenCraft Magazine Article!

Yesterday was an exciting day! It was the deadline to mail my Sketchbook Project 2013 entry. (Which posted in time, thanks to a friend and fellow participating artist… blog post on that to come!) It was also a very good mail day. In the box was my complimentary artist copy of GreenCraft magazine!

I’d been anticipating its release since before Christmas and was tickled to finally have it in my hot little hands!

A quick look at the features told me I would find my Trash Bubbles! article on page 36.

Having approved the article for print weeks ago, I knew what to expect, but it really popped!

I think they made a wise choice with the crisp, white page to offset the color palette of the artwork.

The GreenCraft Winter 2013 issue will be available at newsstands shortly. If you happen to pick up a copy, I would love to hear what you think of the article.

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
