Slowly the central long panel is coming into form. I started with a super basic line cut. Then I moved into something more complicated and connected to the community.
It’s still underway and not yet finished. Below is the piece to connect to the paper mill in town. I spent some time on their website and learned the materials used are waste chips and sawdust from mills processing Douglas Fir trees. The ring cut is based on a conifer tree.
Grass seed and one more mystery square left to design. So close to getting the center section complete!
The big news is that the committee has approved my current design. This news is huge and means I won’t have to go back to the drawing table and start over. Hurrah! More work to come!
This is all part of the Art in Rural Communities project through The Arts Center of Corvallis, OR. Two artists were selected for an exterior wall project, one being myself. I’m chronicling my artistic journey through the full piece.
