Wordy Wednesday: Sort of, but just go look

I have a thing for grungey thing. Bits of paper, paper that looks like it's rolled around in the street and been rained on. Rough brush strokes. Stained paper. Smudged ink.

Take a look at this artist's work. Look at the rust, smudges, weathering. It's what I like.

I've been wordless lately, taking in art, looking, intensely at the things around me. I finally started to organize my random collection of rusty broken bits in little plastic bags, all stapled to a gessoed board. As of now it's a way to collect the pieces, but I'm thinking it's a neat way to organize it too. Show off the random bits.
