Elements






What is it about the beauty of rust...what is it about the delicate curls of weathered paint...what is it about architectural beauty and the marks of the craftsman's tool, the calming effects of water in small pools beckoning us to peek into the well, it's all elemental. The primal urge to touch it's surface, perhaps for warmth, perhaps for beauty, we just know we have to possess it's magic AND...it's just plain COOL...what else!!!

I think there is some form of primal urge that draws us to "the old". And sometimes, rather than restore it to its former beauty, I prefer to leave the old in its adopted beauty through time.
