Lost and Found

Yesterday I posted about the release of a new book from Roxanne Evans Stout: Storytelling with Collage: Techniques for Layering, Color and Texture

Roxanne invited a number of guest artists to create artwork and share their stories. I am so pleased to have been asked to be part of this wonderful book and to have contributed Lost and Found.

Lost and Found

As I walk through the world, I am always on the lookout for the lost. 


I seek objects with a history that have been discarded.


Every find is a true treasure that makes my heart beat just a bit faster.


Each object comes with its own history that will now continue rather than end.


All the pieces await their turn, at the ready for the time when they are needed to complete an artwork. Sometimes that is immediate but most times, the wait is long.


The objects don't seem to mind.

Very beautiful!
I wonder which stories all those found objects would tell if they could speak. ;)

Interesting story behind your finds! I will have to stop & look at things a little differently now.
Looks like one of the objects is a "tap" from a shoe. Hmmmm. I know where to go hunting.;)

As I read your posts, I hear your voice, and it's so soothing and calming... Lol! Thank you for that. I love that these were found objects, as I too always pick up discarded things along my way. I love that they have such a fabulous new home! Great piece, just wonderful.

The intrigue in your piece is what holds me there. So much scatter - but it is the fabric that holds it all together for me. So love the foundation of yellow. Beautiful eclectic work. Congrats to you Seth.
