Environmental art: colour pencils

This is one of my favourite recent finds on Flickr: giant log pencil crayons. I like to describe environmental art as the artist’s conversation with nature. The landscape provides the canvas for the creation of green, sustainable art. Most of these artworks are not permanent: they become subject to the rhythm of the seasons and change appearance according to time of day and year. Imagine this pencil sculpture in the winter, enveloped in a white blanket of snow!

About gamppart

I'm a Visual Artist, Environmentalist, and Art Educator. My areas of creative expression include acrylic painting, mixed media and mosaic art. I especially like working with broken china, which allows me to use discarded, second-hand materials. I'm fond of textures, colours, and organic forms. Cats and chickens are my muse.
