Hurrah! I finally cut something new!!! The design is for an 8″x 8″ lighted piece. This is the first attempt executing the concept from drawings to cutting. I’m actually pleased with the form but still need to figure out additional tweakings. The bird was influenced by a piece of brightly-colored Mexican folk art I grew up with. I used to love looking at that painting! The surface was filled with so many lines and colors! This particular cut ended up well over my size limit, so it’s back to the drawing board! Maybe I’ll actually have something by next week.
I’ll be mounting the cut paper to a wood frame that will be back-lit with an LED bulb.
On the home front, we moved my brother into his home last Friday. I can’t wait to step away from the situation. It’s been way too much family time and not enough time for my life.
