Filbert start

June 28, 2016

Monday I started playing with a filbert design that’s been rattling around my brain for the past couple of days. This time I jumped over a couple of design steps and went quickly to cutting on an 8″x8″ square. Below is the flip side of the work.

The distinctive developing nut clusters remains missing from this first trial. I still need to figure out an appropriate placement among the leaves. This trial is more about making sure the leaves read well enough for figuring out what the image actually represents.

Another idea is to just do the nut cluster and forget the leaves, but I really like the leaf structures. Decisions, decisions…Time will tell.

This work will eventually become a public art exhibit installing in Halsey, OR, mid September 2016. It’s part of the Art in Rural Communities project though the Arts Center in Corvallis, Oregon.
