EcoArt: Books of Red
REVISED: more "red stuff" added---Confined to the house here in Southern California...doing lots of art. Unable to sleep, it helps pass the night. I can listen to the radio and hear the latest news updates while working on art, and it prevents me from going into panic mode.

I wanted to cheer myself up by using my favorite color, red, in this latest Eco Art. Going through my piles of magazine clippings and junk mail, I gathered images and pieces that had red in them; I had a LOT of saved Netflix envelopes (...yeah, I still get the DVD's rather than streaming movies as I've got an old TV set--no HD--and an old DVD/VHS player).
There was so much collected that after the first Book of Red was completed, I made eight more art pieces and finally used up the red colored "stuff"!

It's hard to read from this photo; the words say: "Indigene Menschen" i.e. "Indigenous people", postage stamp image. In 2009 the U.N. issued a series of postage stamps honoring indigenous people from around the world.
