I had a 'Creative Play' day out yesterday with chums Jo Dewar & Sarah Walker...we visited the Shire Hall Gallery in Stafford & Unit Twelve on the outskirts - both fabulous & more on that in other posts soon! As we were leaving I spotted these incredible colours on one of the dilapidated buildings...love the surfaces...not sure if there was a fire to create some of the patterns? Sarah asked me on the way home what I do with all the photographs I take? Usually I just have the urge to capture something...these particular colours & textures I would love to be able to recreate on some of my metal surfaces. Often though it is just to surround myself with images for inspiration & to share with other makers & artists.
