I have been walking around town even though it has been very cold lately. The fresh air always does me good. I usually come back to the studio with a new idea, solution to a challenge or at least a treasure that I found on the street.
I may not use these rusty scraps in a print, but they always catch my attention. I do have a box of rusty things for rusting paper and fabric. Spritz, layer, press and wait. Do you pick up inspiration on the street?
The fabric and leather samples were a find at the recycle store Extras for Creative Reuse in Lynn. This is a great place to find stuff for making art. I always find paper, threads, and mark making tools. If you are local to Lynn, MA check them out.
