Beach glass palm trees housed in Upcycled 10” x 12” painted, vintage frame. Palm trees are teal beach glass, tree trunks are beach twigs, sun/moon is beach metal, and sand was collected on the beach. (Lake Erie, Perry, Ohio.) Beach sand mixed with a dusting of gold glitter.
Why Palm Trees? I actually have a good following of clients originally from up north, who now live part of the year in southern states... South Carolina, Florida, etc. Quite a few have asked for palm trees made with Lake Erie materials. I took a swing at it, and can make more... framed or unframed.
My Grace Dog and I walk on the beach each day. She swims, runs off her excess energy and I collect beach glass, stones, metal, wire, plastic, rubber... bring it all home in my backpack to be used in my art—or recycled.
