This work is Inspired by photographs I’ve taken….in ghost towns and such…..and 
….Incorporates the digital art I’ve created from these photographs and which I print on silk and cotton cloth:
 
…photos from old towns…..window in Jerome Arizona; …. siding in Virginia City Montana; ….. a cobbled street in Taos NM
 
…..lots of photos of rusted objects
 
Plus…layers of paint, paper, thread
 
 
 
A little haiku to think about:
 
Rusted and worn out
Not everything  beautiful 
Is brand new or young
