I’ve been messing around with paper cutting lately. It intrigues me. Sort of like a flat sculpture. You start out with a plain sheet of paper and instead of putting art on it, the paper actually becomes the art. I’m sure that my method of paper cutting is “unorthodox” at best but I am hoping to refine my skills at this art form as I really do enjoy it.
My first attempt was very simple. Cut from a sheet of black paper after an outline drawing I had done. I call it “Compassion”
My next attempt was a design for my Christmas cards this year. I got this idea while doodling one day. I liked the way the heads came out stacked one above another and the angel’s wings sweeping around to embrace them. This one is titled “Heavenly Peace.
