"...the material teaches the artist." - Ilya Ehrenberg
As I was putting my art tools away, it struck me how beautiful these obstensively utilitarian artisan pieces are. Yep, I pulled out my camera...
La Muse Parisienne nue (nude)
The box that holds my paints
(the blurb is in French and Spanish):
"The range of acrylic paints and specialty finishes,
the most complete in the world."
I use this gorgeous tiny Japanese WWII vase
to hold my toothpicks (which I use as tiny paintbrushes)
bracelet pieces in various states of preparation
I found this partitioned plastic box
at my local arts & crafts store.
It holds all of my art bit's and pieces...
Pieces Francaises (French coins)
"I love you more than yesterday, less than tomorrow"
Japanese glass beads
Paris-inspired charms I bought years ago
They're so beautiful and delicate, I had to have them
I still have not figured out what to do with them
Skeleton Keys and Jump Rings
I love these Rockabilly Lucite Crystal Cubes!
Vivre! Rire! Aimer!
