I bought some more old vinyl flooring from my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore and I have had a blast making floor cloths out of the old vinyl.
I turn the vinyl over and paint the backside.
I was reading on the internet tubes about people painting on vinyl flooring.
I thought to myself, "Hey! I could do that!"
So I went to my local Habitat For Humanity Re-store Store and got some vinyl.
I painted an orange background on the vinyl.
As soon as it dries, I will paint several clear sealant coats on it and it will be ready for stepping on!
Six coats of clear sealant and.....
this art is made for walkin'
I was getting down to just about my last Goodwill pre-painted canvas and look what a friend found for me today!
I found myself working on 12 different canvases today, and I could have used more.
I am going to have to tidy up and arrange thing better for laying out wet paintings to dry.
I am running out of horizontal space.
Here's a couple under my work table.
These are still in progress...
I found this rolling rack at the Goodwill outlet store for $5 and it is holding a few more '"in-progress" works that are drying.
I finally finished another floorcloth today!
I could not resist painting both sides.
Something about that blank backside and me with all that paint and such...
This was the first side and it seems a little bland in this photo - but it has some lovely details close up.
This side is way different from the other side.
Good thing you can't see them
both at the same time!
This gives you an idea of how it works on the floor....
I am not sure this is where I will use it - but ya never know!
Some friends and I decided we needed more "art" in our lives last year - so after the first of the year, we started an informal Art Club and we meet every Sunday afternoon in Kathy's basement and make art.
Kathy had painted a canvas floor cloth before and we scrounged up canvas and paint and have gone from there.
I had never painted before and have found that I really like it. Really-Really LIKE it.
This is my second floor cloth that I am working on. I like painting so much that I paint both sides of them.
I have an idea for this funky 50's table that is not in good condition and will post pics later of the completed project.
This one is gonna be fun!
