Recently I have been spending some time "recycling" some of my own artwork, especially pieces that ultimately I feel were not fully satisfying to me. In some cases, the original piece has been painted over, making it virtually unrecognizable. The first artwork has become just one of many layers in a new artwork.
In other cases, I have cut larger work into smaller pieces and then added additional elements. That approach can be seen in the following piece which, along with another new piece made from the same original artwork, is available for purchase in Etsy.
And I am curious how many other people recycle their own art. Feel free to leave a comment sharing your recycling stories.
