The Bag Lady's Garden

Work on the plastic project continues.
Besides the flower petals, I also made leaves.
I've assembled about 100 flowers, using wire and buttons.
The dining room table has been transformed into a garden.
I think I need another couple of dozen flowers before I can finish.
Thanks to all who donated bags to enable my bag habit.

On Being a Bag Lady

My latest project uses plastic shopping bags. My friends are collecting coloured plastic bags for me. I've become a "bag lady". My art room is a wild assortment of bags filled with bags.

I'm having fun experimenting with melting and fusing them into 3-dimensional shapes. I'm hoping to create a large wall sculpture with different colours of plastic shapes for the ReVision recyling show later in the year. It's a long process. I'm needing lots of bags.
