Last weekend, a friend and I went treasure hunting at the Indie Arts vintage Marketplace!
I am always attracted to old photos and film...it's sort of my version of "bright shiny objects".
A small box of old slides caught my eye. Upon further inspection, I realized they were old slides from the Ford Motor Company. There were all kinds of factory shots, men working, and only one with an old truck in it. The slides are 4'' x 3'' and framed with a thin metal.
I gathered up a pile of some of my favorite images, not knowing what I will be using them for. I believe this is how I acquire most of my art objects. I just know i want to use them. I have visions of some kind of window panel or light box. Maybe a stained glass lampshade for a shop light. Oh yea, Dad would love it! Truthfully, it could be years until they work their way into my art, but I am guessing they will.
What do you bet this first slide says, "Safety is everybody's business"?
I love images from big industry. The machinery fascinates me.
Moving to Indiana has been great for the vintage shopping alone!
