Art Inspiration: Rust

No matter where I am, in the city or the country, I am inspired by weathered metal. When I see it, I am reminded that while new, flashy things can be very pretty, they are not always the most beautiful, and some things just get better with age. I created a new collection of art prints that I hope will inspire you, too.
