Living an artful life.


 This first piece, Brave, is just a simple sketch, very scratchy, with a PITT pen over paint on a chicken foam container thingy.  Yuk, but hey, another piece of garbage out of the garbage!


And this second piece, which I actually made the day before Brave, is on a fish foamy container thingy.  My hubs loves chicken and fish!  I adore this next piece, I call Hanging On and Letting Go. This was collaged first and then sketched on top.  I added a bow like because Kristin added a bow! hehe...




here is my instagram of it.  love.

and I already posted this this week, but I also finished... Untitled. Cardboard carved board, painted and collaged!

Now, I have done one more of these meat tray pieces, but it is not done.  Here is a sneak... It is titled Mama!!! Mother!!! Mom!!!



Thanks for looking and happy Paint Party Friday!.  I missed last week, but making up for it now!  :)

Now, show me some paw...

  7. I can show you lots of paw with my 4 doggies all gathered around my studio table right now...LOL. Love that you use those foamy things! Have your tried sketching into them with the back end of a paintbrush and then using them as a block print? I've been wanting to try that and haven't found the spare time yet. The last one is my favorite by the way, I love little houses. Happy PPF! #25 Robin Panzer Art Studio 33

  12. Very inspirational work this week. I try and reuse as many of those trays as possible, but I never thought actually paint on them. My son's art teacher uses them to let the kids make models and cut shapes for collages and things.

  29. I love the fact that you're using styrofoam- I absolutely hate when places give me styrofoam cups, etc. How wonderful that you're recycling it into art! Love the colors on that second piece! And I also love the colors in your cardboard piece from the last post!!

  32. Belated Happy PPF--I was sorry to miss it this week, but I love the things you've shared. The "show me some paw" pic made me laugh!

    Also...someone started a game of blog tag today and I tagged you. You can see my blog for more info--absolutely no obligation to play along, but I wanted to feature a few of the bloggers I enjoy reading...like you! Happy Sunday, Daniele :)

  33. I love your recycled art and how supremely creative you with it all. I am always so inspired by you. I'm working on a project now that I was inspired to do because of you. It's going a bit slowly though. I need to get back to it though. I will definitely let you know when I finish it.
    You have such a fun, whimsical style and your sunny, funny personality shows through. Love it all! :D
