Sentimental Objects

It might seem odd to get sentimental about this old plastic container from Double Rainbow Ice Cream.  But I have used it steadily to hold water and soak brushes for 17 years.  I was somewhat saddened to notice it had cracked last week.  This plastic container has been part of virtually every work of art I have made since 1997!  I can’t use it anymore, but I think I’ll save it. 

And then, hours later, I noticed a crack in the plastic handle of my trusted Exacto cutter.  This one has been given quite the workout for the Collagescapes series.  I really did not trust my masking tape repair and replaced this tool a few days ago.  You want your sharp objects to be in good condition.
