From driftwood to artwork at Adrift Art Studio
One thing C.S. loves very much is driftwood. She found her first piece on the south shores of Lake Michigan and she has been hunting for unique pieces every since. She collects it. She cleans it and she makes artwork out of it.
Sometimes the pieces are small and she turns them in to jewelry pendants. Sometimes the pieces are very large and she has been known to turn them in to all kinds of things.
One thing for certain, she never gets bored with making the driftwood creations and she never gets bored with hunting the driftwood.
One of her favorite ways to be creative on driftwood is to add the technique of pyrography and color it up with acrylic paints. Sometimes she uses a small amount of acrylic paint and sometimes she just paints the night away.
This piece tells a story.
It is a very sad story. One that has not yet found an ending.
