Treasure Tray

I’m not a scrapbooker… But in my studio I have a this tray which holds bits and pieces from people and places; little reminders of trips we’ve (mostly they have) taken or simply items of a shared love or interest. The can and do inspire my art.

Some times I paint rock or make paintings of rocks (See the inspiration rock on the tray beneath the Emu egg shell)

I love lines…

An oolite (I do believe) in the dark stone and the gray stone with a black line that goes completely around (maybe inside) and a tiny, naturally embossed letter “T”…

and lines on a shell that remind of people standing in the sun to make long shadow line with their bodies.

Jasper with it’s ribbon or wood grain type folds. So smooth inside yet with a rough and coral like outer surface.

There is a small piece of wood, written on in my mother’s hand Palm Springs March 22, 1971 San Jacinto Mt 8,516 ft. My folks were camper van travelers.

Some of the objects have been added just because I have this thing for texture…

This shell looks like crepe paper to me
The beautiful Rose Gypsum

There are pieces of metal (a leaf, of course) and glass (this piece with glitter).

And one of my favorites; a slice of agate that makes me feel like I’m standing on a hill above the beach watching the waves roll in. Can you see it or something else?

    I think you’d like my basket of Washington state Pacific Ocean rocks I’ve been lugging around since the 1970s. I had forgotten about rose gypsum, which is lovely. As to your picture agate, I see an aerial view of one of the SW canyon floors during the dry season.
