See those fat brushes in the first picture on the left, I have a whole canister full of those. I love the way they look.

I love paint brushes...what a story they tell. Not just the paintings they produce, but about the hands that hold them. I remember An Urban Cottage had a pitcher full of tiny brushes when he showed his book cases. He said they were once from a well known painter...I love these photos.

I have a connection to objects that are used or worn by hands over time. They carry a little bit of the souls of the people who touched and used them. I have a pitcher full of old paint brushes I display like an arrangement of flowers. Some of them are worn down to stubs. Love them.

Don't you wonder what works of art were created?

Aren't they so interesting. I try to keep my brushes clean...well you know. You get wrapped up in the painting and then you are exhausted; as long as the bristles are kept soft.
