Lost & Found each piece 4x4"
I wanted to create some smaller pieces for the upcoming Art Girlz in Autumn show in September and while I was trolling through one of my cigar boxes labeled "Rusty Stuff", I got an idea.
Some of these found objects are almost art in themselves - delightful patina, interesting shapes, etc. and I thought - why not a small canvas featuring just one of them? With an appropriately colourful background of course!
So here's what I came up with using acrylic garnet gel, paint (red iron oxide, raw sienna and titanium buff). Each canvas sports an old, rusty tool and an identifying vintage number plaque.
I've decided to call the series Lost & Found -
