Bay Area artists looking to help the environment need to look no further than their own backyard... Heritage Salvage of Petaluma has an entire palette of recycled wood and can custom frame your paintings too. For the March show of "Art on the Farm" at the renowned Stinson Beach, Claudia Chapline Gallery, my painting will have a recycled wood frame created by the staff at Heritage Salvage. Above, you can see the many choices available in recycled wood... The corner frame samples and colors are on the left of the image. Click the photo above to enlarge. Do you have a favorite frame for this painting, above? Email me your favorite, or send an idea of your own.
When I arrived with boys in tow yesterday, Michael "Bug" Deakin was on site, and happy to let my little driver sit and play on the company forklift. It's a fun place to visit, with all kinds creative ideas for building with recycled materails. I wrote about Heritage Salvage over a year ago when I learned of them from local artist, Judith Selby Lang, who is constantly creating art with recycled trash from beaches and helping to educate and inspire all in our local community.
