Clear Cut - Paper Cut

And last but not least.... The last paper cut I made before the "Heather, Heather, Heather" exhibit!  I do enjoy working with the black paper, partially because it is much thinner than all the other paper I have worked with, so it is much easier on my poor hand and wrist.

This piece is called "Clear Cut."  Get it!?!?  Art is allowed to have dorky jokes, too.  Or perhaps it's not dorky...  No, it is sophisticated.  'Aaaah, the title, "Clear Cut" refers to both the destroying of forests and the actual material of paper cutting itself.'  How clever.

All joking aside, this piece represents our interdependence with nature.  So often people think of humans vs. nature.  But humans ARE nature.  When we destroy the planet, we inevitably destroy ourselves.

In other news, I have been working on another portrait commission and my studio is still in the works, but still needs shelves and a table built.  Stay tuned to see the results of both the portrait and the studio!

Thanks so much for reading, and as always, your comments are welcome and more than appreciated.
