I have collected paper art pieces since I was in college~
My idea of fun when I was 18?
Antique shows, festivals... estate sales... auctions.
Most of my palette finds were less than $1. each~
I'm never bothered by condition...
The less perfect~ the more loved!
Met a woman who deals in paper...
Boy does she have cool things!
I help her sort, move etc. work off a few palettes!
When I have "collections" they are from her stash.
Her prices were so reasonable... because she has a love of paper.
A wonderful gift from her~ knowledge.
Some have advertising~
Some in my collection are pages from old magazines
that someone saved & preserved~
Funny little pup trying to entertain the struggling artist!
Look at the precious little expression of the little one!
Time frozen on a palette...
Much the same as the artists who painted history for us~
You must notice my favorites?
A couple with birds~
That would be a fun place to paint~
Wrapped in plastic~
Tossed in baskets, tucked inside books, in the bottom of postcard boxes...
Turn over every rock!
Peek behind every bush!
How I love to play in my studio~
Fussing with piles that have hidden moments.
An excuse to look at ALL when I put two little treasures away.
Hope your Sunday is filled with joy!
