stamp project continued

originally the project's main focus was on the home. this changed as i cycled through the city and began to see completely abandoned strip malls, office buildings, grocery stores, even breweries.  the place where people go to work everyday becomes such an integral part of life that it only felt right to add them to the line up.  i've even considered adding in buildings that are clearly owned and have been newly renovated; such as condo buildings if they are obvious vacancies.

what food means to me

this is not something i would normally post, but for this project i'm sorting through my relationship with food. not just what i enjoy eating or basic consuming, but what i really love about food. 
The texture on my tongue and in my hands as i cook, the sounds, 
the colors.
bought a cotton/linen table cloth from a local vintage store and
the plan is to embroider.
i love John Cage's relationship with food. just a little bit of research i 
wanted to share.
