a button, a scrap of spider's web, and picasso, on art.


"The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web."

— Pablo Picasso

Our senses do indeed trigger our emotions. Your photo is very unique ... the button reminds me of Mama's button jar full of all colors and shapes and sizes!

The quote reminds me of my son who is an artist. He sees art wherever he looks.

Your photo seems almost Picasso inspired, Leslie...what fun this is! I came across this Picasso quote recently and love it. Everything is art, art is in everything. :o) Happy Week ((HUGS))

I feel like Picasso would appreciate that photo. It's one of my very favorites. The detail on the button with the tiny scrap of spider web and the boca in the background - it's amazing.

Love this, and it explains why I've been feeling all over the place lately.
