Disk Art Paintings

Being green, Bonnie transforms CD and DVD’s into works of art. Canvas is glued and trimmed to each individual disk then painted randomly with acrylic colors. Handwritten; using dimensional fabric paints are TV/Movie/Theatre titles and quotes. The disks are also layered to give the faces some depth, using different widths of cut wooden dowels. The portraits are finished with a two to three color oil paint.
In addition to using the disks, I have also used the cases. Painting in and on quotes and images pertaining to the celebrity.
