Some of you may remember my feature a few months ago on abstract artist Esther Barend. Well Esther has a unique new project that I want to share with you. These one of a kind “Portable Art” bags are hand-made by Barend from design to assembly. The outer shell of the bags are original acrylic on canvas paintings signed by the artist. Each bag is reinforced on the inside with a thin plastic layer so the canvas remains in tact. Rain and dirt proof, the bags also have a protective varnish so they can be used in any kind of weather. As well, each piece comes with its own certificate.
