Suncatchers

This gallery displays all of my suncatchers currently in stock.

Wildflowers and sleepy cats on sunny windowsills, clever and thoughtful sayings, I’ve designed a collection of handmade suncatchers featuring my artwork using upcycled photo frames.

MATERIALS AND DESIGN
Remember all those annoying little metal frames we used for our photos, 3-1/2 x 5, 4 x 6, 5 x 7, thin, cheap metal colored gold or silver? I would see boxes of them at estate sales and yard sales and think, “I have to think of something to do with those, imagine how many are thrown away all the time!”

FINISHING
Well, I did! I use the same vinyl labels I use for my votives to make suncatchers for another in my line of repurposed, reused upcycled old stuff. I often add another finish to the frame itself, usually in a color that matches the artwork. I’ve also incorporated text into some of my designs. To further reuse materials that would otherwise be sent to a landfill, I use chains from old jewelry to hang them, even using the jump rings and catches sometimes.

Special: Two Suncatchers for $25.00

Maybe you want a set or it’s hard to choose just one, this special discount applies all the time on all designs of votives, nature and cats: buy two suncatchers for $25.00, use the discount code 2SUNCATCHERS25. You get a $5.00 discount when you buy two. All tax, shipping and handling are included in that price. Buy one for yourself and one for a friend!

Peaches and Peonies suncatcher

This 5″ x 7″ suncatcher is made from an upcycled metal photo frame with a print of my painting “Peaches and Peonies” on a clear frosted vinyl label, and it’s hung with a vintage sweater clasp. Price includes shipping.

I use upcycled metal photo frames from thrift shops and yard sales and print the image on a frosted vinyl label in my line of repurposed, reused upcycled old stuff. I’ve added a bit of pink gold to this silver frame. To further reuse materials that would otherwise be sent to a landfill, I used the clasps and chain from a vintage sweater clasp.

There it is, that moment that turns on all the lights for me…one of my cats in the sun, the conditions that have inspired most of my portraits. Cats are creatures of habit, and Peaches chose this spot to have her after-dinner bath every day for a few weeks when the sun was right; I knew it was a keeper whether a photo or a painting, so I photographed it several times over a period of several days, knowing I’d use at least one photo or all the photos as reference to create one painted image.

The painting illustrates a moment in my kitchen that I treasure because it includes Peaches, plus my painted white wood table with the vintage Battenburg lace table cover, three painted white chairs I’d picked up over the years and a hand-made white-painted cabinet that carried a story all on its own, plus a bouquet of peony flowers a friend had stopped and dropped off because she thought I’d like them. The reflections, the wrinkles in the cloth, everything is the memory of a part of my life, but so I’ve found, also familiar to others.

Please read more about Peaches and about this painting at Peaches and Peonies.
