The Bottom of the Cup

It all started at a Christmas ornament workshop. We began by pouring craft paint into clear glass ornaments.

 Wine and Heritage. This piece came out the love of wine and her Native American lineage.

We swirled it around a little and turned the ornament over so it could drain into a paper cup. While the finished product was beautiful – what was left in the bottom of the cup was more interesting to me.

This is how “Paint Drops” was born. That was in 2009. Since then the journey has taken me to insect wings (Khepri), flower petals (Petals) and bicycle spokes (OutSpoken).

I think the most fun I have with Paint Drops is including people in the process: choosing colours, shapes, sizes – dropping the paint and seeing their delight with the end result knowing they had a hand in creating their piece.
