This was probably the quickest hand-cut paper piece I’ve done so far. I’ll probably alter the arrangement a tad more, to keep better connection to the sides. Clover is quite an abundant crop in the Halsey area due to the local honey producers. Back in 2014, when I created the camas project, I made sure to use local beeswax from an apiary that keeps hives in that area. Clover, radish, and meadow foam are popular bee/honey crops here in the Willamette Valley.
The above work will become part of a public art piece in Halsey, Oregon as part of The Arts Center of Corvallis Art in Rural Communities program. There will be 13 metal panels focusing on agriculture in the Halsey area.
