You’ve got to grab those opportunities where you can

I just have one question about this:

Some area artists are making old look new by featuring recycled materials in their work.

Their pieces, showcased Saturday at the Green Arts Festival at the Talento Bilingue de Houston in the East End, include glass, metal, scrap wood and even bottle caps.

Janise Cookston, who has been painting for seven years, said her recent effort to include recycled materials is challenging her to be more creative.

“I don’t make as many trips to the art store now,” the public relations representative said. “I just sit in my studio and see what I have and what I can make from that.”

Were any of these artists working with discarded oil drums to make big metal chickens? I hear the market for them is red hot these days.
