Flocked flowers from an old roll of wallpaper, a torn out photo of a barn and a rusty hinge...all remnants in my studio.  I love how these pieces sit and wait their turn to get onto one of my boards.  Once I added the rusty titled itself.  So many times as kids we heard..."where you born in a barn",  when we didn't close the front door! I would live in this barn.


Remnants.  Inspired by my love and appreciation of old things, seemingly cast off items that could be easily traded in for something shiny and new…instead I see the beauty that still exists there.  In a small piece of floral paper that is no less beautiful than the larger piece it was cut from?  The rusty hinge that becomes more handsome because of its colored patina?  A plaster wall more interesting because of the history within the cracks of its surfaces?


We are, everything is, made up of the same matter and differs only by the energy we assign it.  I’m inspired by the bits and pieces I come across in my day, whether it be strip of paper left on my art table, dried paint on my palette, a scrap of metal  I come across while out walking, a dried flower blown in on a breeze.  Giving these bits a new life in a work of art is a great honor and something I am inspired to do with the pieces I find…Remnants.
