Drawer Where Art Went To Die

Description: I have a small metal drawer set which contains just three drawers. Each big enough to hold a stack of greeting cards or some folded letter size papers.

In the bottom drawer I started collecting the used batteries from my hearing aids. They only last about a week and I have had the hearing aids for many years, though I don’t use them every day.

My thought was to use the dead batteries in some kind of art piece. Just a random idea that now is no longer meaningful or relevant to me. If I had kept up with the idea I would have a LOT more batteries, but this small pile seems useless now.

This is how it is with art projects sometimes. If they sit too long.

Don’t let your art sit. Do it, if only just for yourself. Now.
