Closer To Home

I just left a piece of art this afternoon at the Culleoka Store. I left it on the window sill of the shop that is for sale. This photo was on the piece with a hand colored mat. I took this photo just in time. A couple of days later they had mowed the grass around and under the truck and the elder flowers are turning to berries. I love the blue of the truck. I changed the photo to black and white and hand colored it to make it more subtle. I try to look for scenes as I drive to town that would make good subjects.
Enjoy every second of summer.

Bubble Gum Piece

Yesterday I left this piece at First Farmers and Merchants Bank on the bubble gum machine in the entrance. It seemed like a perfect place for a piece of art about children. I think that the creative child still lives inside everyone and we have to give it opportunities to come out. Creativity can be reawakened. Just get some simple art materials and start to play. Don't worry about failing. Concentrate on the process, not the product. I heard a quote the other day by Sachel Paige: "We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing." I intend to never stop playing!
Have fun!

Found Art for 6-12-06

I am putting out two or three new pieces today. One is made from the Time Flies piece and the other is a new collage that I did from a photo that came from my husband's grandparents, a map of Italy, stamp stickers, and some mass transit reciepts from an Argentine friend of ours. I'm not quite sure where I will leave them. If you have found one, thanks for taking the time to look me up. Be sure to leave a comment.
Enjoy the ride!

River Found Art

On Memorial Day, we were at the Tennessee River cruising up and down the river. After a while we decided to park at the shore for a bit. I love to look for shells, Indian artifacts, and interesting driftwood on the shore. I got a little bored and decided to make some art out of the materials at hand. I am including a photo of my river found art. It's not anything spectacular but it kept me entertained for a while. Maybe someone got a chuckle out of it. It is make of driftwood, green plums, mussel shells, a light bulb, a fishing float and various other bits. I haven't had time to make any other found art in the past week. Too much going on. Maybe this week will be calmer, but probably not. Rejoice!
