memories




















An old abandoned Ford truck gave me a chance to stop, look and think about things of my boyhood and how, now these surfaces and colours appeal to me in a different way.





















Someone recently asked me, what do I do with these photos. Well what can I say, except perhaps that I stopped for a moment, looked, and wanted the keep that memory alive somehow.





















What will I "use" these images for? What work will I make from my contemplations? Who knows? Or when even? Sometimes it's enough just to take a back seat and fill my head with beautiful stuff. It's just great to let these lovely stimuli wash over me and not think about -the result!.
























I find the visual textures are beautiful in themselves and they don't need to go anywhere else for the time being. I hope they do something for you too.

Gorgeous photos Jack! Very wabi sabi. Beauty like this just fills the well, no need to make specific specific plans.

So beautiful! I wish I had a big garden and a truck just like that one in it. It's a gorgeous installation in itself. Love your pictures.

Really love those pictures of the rusty surfaces and peeling paint - great textures.

My aim is to create art intuitively to achieve such
unpredictable results as these wonderful images you've discovered & not reproduce them !

Hi Jack. I love rust and optimism so I've become your newest follower. Now I'm going to take a look at your earlier posts. I'm a painter/mixed media artist on Vancouver Island. Have a great day!

I SO love these images. It's enough to stop and appreciate before moving on. Thanks for sharing.
