Lint Trap

When I moved back to Michigan from Texas, I was so pleased to hear that recycling was practiced and was easy to do.  Lint traps are also used, not by all, but by my family.  Since I had never heard of lint traps, I bought several kinds and found the wire ones to be the best.  In the spirit of recycling, when they are ready to be replaced the trap has built up a hefty amount of lint and I thought they made wonderful sculptural structures; hence I have saved each and every one.  I have painted them, dipped them in shellac, dipped them into gesso, you name it and I have done it.  So when putting on a new lint trap, I thought one could be used to pose the miniatures I have been collecting also.  For those of you who don’t know, they are all less than an inch tall.

Those of you who have been enjoying my postings, I thought it might be fun to have you put a title on this one.  I’ll give a away a high resolution print to the person who comes up with the title I like the most.

  1. I think its about clearing out specfic people in your life that have a negative impact on you. I found myself reevaluating myself when going through the breast cancer and knew that some people just had to be edited out of my life.
