Falling Plumerias

Here’s the “Falling Plumerias”.

This painting was inspired by the beautiful and delicate plumerias that float with the warm breeze of the pacific. In the tree or in the grass these flowers are one of the amazing natural beauties of Hawai’i.

I love the simplicity and fragrance of this amazing flower, and the peace that I feel every time I walk by the green fields with the plumerias trees is amazing. Enjoy the “Falling Plumerias”

Recycled Picture Frame

Recycled Art?
I have recently thought about making a recycled picture frame with my students and give it a try. It really doesn’t take that much time and you can make a nice and original gift to your friends and family that helps the environment.

It’s an awesome idea to recycle things… “It costs at least three times more to dump trash in landfills than it costs to reuse and recycle”[1] and it makes you think in creative ways to use those things and make them practical and look good. These are more than reasons to check this post and trigger your creativity.

I also used this recycled artwork as an education and awareness tool for my students… in short we had lots of fun 🙂
You can have an idea of how to make a recycled picture frame with the following pictures >>

Picture frame #1

To make a recycled picture frame from scratch we only need cardboard, news paper, glue, paint and creativity. This is what I came up with:

Mara Barnco Arts Mara Branco Arts
Mara Branco Arts Mara Branco Arts

And this is what the kids came up with 🙂

Picture frame #2

We tried another picture frame style. For this one we need cardboard, an old magazine, glue, magnet, and paint. Here’s my frame:

 

 

 

 

And the kids work 🙂

Now we’re finally ready to frame our family and friends pictures in the freezer. Great job everyone!
