has become a messy place. Give me a flat surface
and I will stack stuff on it!
Post tax-time, I am tackling and rearranging files
and feeding my paper shredder.
Above and below are two more delicate ways
to cut into paper.
The paper above has been gessoed, lacquered
and treated with patinating acids
on copper/brass paints.
The mermaid scene has been sealed with
blue Rustoleum and ended up
with an antiqued finish.
My incrusted left-hand gives you a idea
of the cut-out's size. Both were done one night at the gallery.
