Linda,
thank you for your emails
and you're right and tight:
arting is a never ending journey.

I'm struggling with space to storage my arting,
some unfinished projects, some that I'm sure is like arqueological piece of junk only taking space, but I cannot get rid of... and is like that when I go to the basement.
I cannot wait for the begining of the new season at the art League. I have no idea where I'll be going, but is a smooth ride and I'm ready for.

awesome work, love working with repurposed art materials! Very creative use of those tins. I'm thinking of making miniature altars from mine...

Dear Sardine Queen,
Would you like me to save for you the sardine cans that I empty, or do you personally eat more than you can art?
Also, should you wish to branch out in shape or size with your can-arting, I've saved for years metal cans with re-closible lids: many made for 1/4, 1/2, or 1 lb. of tea, mostly cubical with round, square or both lids, some cylindrical, plus round or oblong, flat mint and candy boxes, most with hinged lids, and some tobacco tins, my favorite saying in big letters, the brand name: THREE NUNS
crying out for relief figures inside whether fish, mermaids or ??
If you'd like to try arting with any of these, just tell me.
Yours truly, Jamie, Jack of Can

Linda,
Just great works of arting! "Once Fresh Fish," is my favorite - it reminds me of me - ha! Hope you are doing as well as your work appears of you. Tardy since Christmas (but never forgetful) Your LLF, BradMM

I just LOVE your sardine cans! So original.. What tools do you use?

lk said...

Thank-you Lorraine...
tools? I've used everything from altered clothespins, regular chasing tools, to pushpins...but, mostly use the typical chasing tools....and whatever else comes in handy.
