I work with paper, cutting, tearing, slicing, and layering to create a semi-realistic image. It creates a painting like quality until you get close and see that the texture, depth, light and shadow are developed through the layering, texture and choice of colored paper.
Kinglet in pine with snow - the feeling of cold. Layers of paper builds the bird and rolled paper builds the pine needles with a dusting of paper for snow. Paper, gel medium, charcoal on canvas.
