About a month ago I resigned from a job I was doing for the art group and a few weeks ago the ladies of the Portland Art Collective presented me with a very unique thank you gift. One of the beauties of this group is over the years we have found each others weak spots. In my case I do a lot of assemblage and love the color of age. That includes the beautiful patina on a handle of an old tool, the color of rust only Oregon can produce and all the chipped odd bits you find in the very bottom of a wood box in the back of a garage. In the box they don't look like much but as you can see separated and organized the bits are very attractive. They call to me to use them as a leg, or hat or ???? the possibilities are endless.
Thank you ladies I love it all.
