Glancing out my window on this bright sunny morning, the day seems full of possibilities! My view outside the window (particularly in Wyoming, it would seem) is a great metaphor for a Saturday morning! I mean, based on what I can SEE, I believe that if I were to step outside, the air would be a nice, balmy 70 degrees, with a light, comfortable breeze–sun soaking into my skin and making me feel fantastic inside and out! However, based on my previous experiences from a week full of teaching, I’m guessing that things might feel a little different–were I to step outside (which I plan to do after this post!). Perception is everything. Perception is, in fact, a big part of the creative process. Do you see the possibilities in things, or do you see nothing but waste, barriers…distractions?
Today I want to introduce you to an artist who has explored the many possibilities of recycled found objects to create beautiful works of art! I was first introduced to Scott Rolfe’s work at the beginning of this month when I was browsing around a shop in Austin, Texas. I stumbled upon his book, “AESSEMBLAGE,” containing his beautiful found object illustrations of Aesop’s Fables. Here are a few examples of his work, found on his blog:
His ability to transform and give life to found objects is fantastic! I urge you to check out Scott’s blog for more information about his creative process and work!
And now…it’s Wonder Walk time!
Happy Saturday! 🙂 Make the most of your day!
