This is actually smaller than it looks. It’s about 4″ x 6″.
I’ve been packing up a bunch of old frames and I realized that I have many more small frames than I will ever use.
I had some down time at work the other day and wanted to see if I could quickly make something small.
At first this was going to be a comet, but I couldn’t cut any worthwhile detail in a comet the size of a dime, so I changed it to a moon-like celestial object.
I recently took a bunch of stuff to the Waxwing and Sparrow Collective to sell. This was supposed to be among them, but several things kept getting in the way of it’s completion.
It’s done now. I’ll post here when it’s for sale.
I am also in the process of re-designing this website so it may come down for a few days in the near future.
Hopefully it will be quick.
I finished this last week, but I’ve been blowing off posting it due to focusing on framing art to sell.
There’s a pretty simple message here; not every interesting person you’ve known wants to be included in your life forever.
I was wanting to make a papercut of a lonely widow.
I researched widows in history and literature and none really inspired me.
Not too long after, I was designing a different papercut and couldn’t remember the name of the farmer that killed Peter Rabbit’s dad (Mr. McGregor).
While looking it up, it occurred to me that Josephine Rabbit was a widow.
This scenario takes place later in her life.
This is a papercut from way back in 2012 that I originally designed for a calendar. The calendar fell though and I put all of the cuts I did for it in a folder.
Not long after that, my friend Zak asked if he could have it, so I gave it to him. Back then I didn’t use colored paper and every time I’d go over to his house, I’d see it on his wall and think that I should take it back and color it. I finally did that last week.
Now, I’m no better than Ted Turner ruining old films.
This is another small papercut I did trying to determine how to scale it into a larger piece.
I haven’t had much time to make pieces for sale lately because I was selected to include a unique piece in the upcoming John Michael Kohler Art Center Folklore & Legends exhibit.
I’ll post more on that later.
Some time soon, this piece along with more new and old work will be for sale at the Waxwing, and a new place for me, Sparrow Collective!
Look for a post on my Facebook page when they are available for purchase.
