Figure Friday - addendum

In the ongoing attempt to use up my endless-mountain-of-chips, I had to start making up new places to put them...

...so one of the solutions was to expand my beds underneath the trees in the front yard.

I do not like putting chips directly on grass however - it just grows right up through. It is better to put down a nice layer (the thicker the better) of newspaper to suffocate the grass and keep it weed-free. Unfortunately, I ran out of newspaper about halfway through...

Not wanting to leave uncovered grass, I racked my brains and then remembered all the used newsprint I had in the studio! All those old gesture drawings can now be put to good use!

Life -drawing recycled! Can't think of a better re-purposing than this. :-D
