Countless hours of enjoyment came from listening to my vintage vinyl record collection. It was destined to become an art project.

Avocado skin has great texture. I discovered after excavating the fruit and drying the skin, they become even more appealing (no pun intended). They shrivel and take on odd shapes while the interior develops soft muted colors. The humble parsnip was an unexpected surprise. They have an earthy flavor when cooked, but I prefer the dehydrated version for art projects. They too, shrivel and morph into wondrous shapes and colors. In this instance, both of these bounties of nature take center stage atop a 45 rpm record. Nature and her natural forms are intriguing to me for my 3-dimensional and 2-dimensional projects.
