blue jean paintings


I made these small paintings on pieces of old blue jeans for the Upcycling Art Exhibit, April 22 – 27, 2013 at the Burrard Market in Vanderhoof. The exhibit was organized by the Nechako Arts Council and Nechako Valley Waste Reduction Initiative for Earth Day.

  1. how are these done? is the background the same fabric as the painting or is the painting mounted? some fabric is deep red – is that “blue jean” fabric too? did you gesso the painted part?

    • Thanks for visiting. I start with a square of denim and gesso a square in the middle and paint the painting on that section. The little paintings are un-mounted. For the ones that have red around edges, I painted that edge fabric also. Hope that answers your questions!
