In Fort Yellowstone, there is a little old house that belonged to the early mail carrier of the region. So much history going on with this little house and so many remnants inside and all around it's exterior. I took lots of photos and this one really intrigued me. The old wood of the kitchen window, the flower box atached to it, the shingles on the side of the house...I added in a rusty wire and tacks from an old picture frame and a few stamps with a log cabin on them...all bits and piece of history.
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 it’s 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.
