Rust

Rust is the name for the chemical compound iron oxide.  For iron to become iron oxide all that is needed is iron, water and oxygen.

I love to see an old vehicle in a field or an old push mower placed as an ornament in someones garden left to the elements to rust and become beautiful.

The color of rust  and the  texture of rust is art to me.  The act of iron , oxidizing and trying to return itself back to the earth has a poetic nature to it.
