Found Art / Found Objects
According to the traditional definition, found objects used in art are "objects which has not been designed for an artistic purpose, but which exists for another purpose."
So the drain cover in "After the Rain" is a found object, as is the barbed wire I made to use in the "Blue Bird" quilt in the Feather series, and also the key I used in "not even the rain: a love poem."
And the photo of the little Santa? Found it in a book that was checked out from the library. I have no idea who drew it but it would be the literal definition of "found art."
Hope your holidays are filled with surprises and maybe even found art.
