But today this image popped up on a site. I was first drawn in by the striped borders with the buttons irregularly placed and the more I studied it the more I was fascinated. I will never look at buttons the same again.. This work was done by internationally recognized artist, Nancy Smeltzer but I had never seen her work.
I have to admit to being a button snob and never give kitschy plastic buttons a second look but just look at them here.
I had to immediately google her work and here are some more images... Enjoy as I'm off to dig through my boxes of buttons..
