AMERICAN FLAG HEARTS

Heart Art in American Flag styles created from found objects, recycled & repurposed materials.  These American Flag, Heart shaped wall decor assemblages are originals and one of a kind.

Heart VII - OLD GLORY

Since I am still on my heart assemblage kick, and with the 4th of July right around the corner I thought I would try my hand at making an American Flag heart.  I adore how it turned out.  So much fun with this one.  This piece is a really personal one for me too because I used a bit of denim from one of my sister's pair of jeans.  After she passed away I kept many pairs of her jeans and wear them often.  With this pair I wore them so much they could no longer be worn anymore.  I know how much she would love knowing that a piece of her jeans are in this work.   Like me, my sister also had a great love for her country and she was never afraid to say she was a proud American or afraid to fly or wear the American flag.

My assemblages always have a few different faces usually as I pick and try different materials here and there, but this one really just sort of put itself together.  I used material from my sister's jeans and an old bag I had that was falling apart.  We have old barrel staves that had a natural reddish paint that had been on them, some vintage white wood rulers, and some old walnut siding.
