This drawing project began as a challenge to my usual go-to of working with fluid on large pristine surfaces. I already had a little collection of road flattened bottle tops that I appreciated for the natural aesthetic of an outcome created by thoughtless disposing, weathering and then the weight of cars and tyres. I also had a collection of beads, bit and bobs and then the idea just to make each one different. Drawing is so open to not having a particular destination.
I have decided to keep going with this. It's such a enjoyable change toi work sitting and small, and I keep collecting bits and bobs and liking how people don't see at all what they are. A firiend called them buttons. Some of the shiny gorgous colours come from beer cans and I love how that relates back to bottle tops...parrot dog...I'm thinking of you
