Rhapsody II, Artist Talk II

Remember my paper cut, "Rhapsody"?  Well I really liked that piece, so I decided to make "Rhapsody II"

Dictionary Definition:
rhapsody |ˈrapsədē|nounan effusively enthusiastic or ecstatic expression of feeling: rhapsodies of praise.• Music a free instrumental composition in one extended movement, typically one that is emotional or exuberant in character.

This is one of my newer works currently on display at the Bay County Public Library, until April 3rd.

I wanted to have a little fun with this one, so these photos happened.

I would also like to announce that due to popular demand I will be giving my "Cut It Out" artist talk one more time!  So if you missed the first one, do not fret!  Your second chance will be Sunday, March 24th, at 2pm.  My art will still be up on the walls of the library, as well.

Green Tip #13:  Line Dry Your Clothes.  Estimations say that electric clothes dryers account for almost 6% of total electricity usage in U.S. homes.  Why pay to dry your clothes when the sun and the wind will do it at no harm to your wallet or the planet?  PLUS clothes put out on the line to dry last much longer than clothes used in a dryer.  PLUS the sun has stain-removing powers.  PLUS how beautiful is it to see clothes softly swinging in the breeze?  The image below was taken from a great article about line drying your clothes.  Check it out for more tips on drying clothes both inside and out:  Eco Child's Play: Line Drying Your Clothes.
