True Connections

Folded and cut paper opens to reveal balanced symmetrical designs, with interest added here and there. I would like to display 3-4 pieces, with a water theme running through them. The turtle is paper on painted paper; Water Is Life and the Otters would be paper on painted/stained wood. My previous entry of Bear Witness is detailed here to show that technique, as is the Wolf design. The 3 - 4 piece cluster would take approximately 4 1/2' wall space. I use scissors mostly, to create flowing curves and a hand-shaped feel. What started as a child's craft has evolved into an expressive art form for me.
