"Bolts, Nails, and Screws in Blue" by Jennifer Hart.  7" x 9" made from walnut substrate, mortar, screws, nails, and bolts. This is a sampler in blue mortar of rusty bolts, nails and screws. Long and short. Thick and thin. Straight and crooked. I have been using 1" thick walnut wood scrap as one of my substrates for several years. This wood is not necessarily square or even and it may have pencil or paint marks or some remaining bark, this all adds to the character of the piece.Any special care instructions: interior use only.

 I embrace reduce/reuse/recycle/repurpose in my personal life and my artwork. I want to see and use things in a new way. Scrap wood with its knots, nail holes, bark, old paint, and myriad of imperfections is a true treasure not to be tossed aside. Old cabinet doors are a perfect slate and as an added bonus their angles are usually pretty square. One of my most recent finds was a Made in Oregon cutting board with all its knife marks and faded logo. I had to have it and immediately used it for my piece Soft Pink. I love the hunt and scraping the bottom of the bin or bucket for that interesting piece of metal of which I have no idea of its original purpose, but I see shape, texture, color, and possibility. Miscellaneous metal, rusty old hardware, nuts, bolts, chains, wire, hinges, deadbolts, screws, nails, and washers, Oh my! And then there is glass, pottery, tile, china, beads, bobbles, and old jewelry. The possibilities are endless and every piece is unique.
