New Art: Turning Litter Into Love

Sometimes I see litter on our beautiful planet and just walk on by feeling disgusted and disappointed, but most of the time Iook for a trash receptacle or bag to pick it up. I live my life as much as possible by the syaing, “The Earth does not belong to us, we belong to the earth.”


When I saw these candy wrappers I just couldn’t resist. I had to turn this litter into love.

Creating art outside in nature is so balancing. I love to take walks in the park and stop to create art out of leaves, flowers, pine cones, rocks, twigs or even litter. I become so absorbed in the process that I rarely notice when someone has stopped out of curiosity to watch me.

What do you think?

Have you ever made temporary art outside?
