Art and Paper

It's been a while since I produced any art other than photography. There is just something about hands on creating and producing something that isn't from this world that is really soothing. And there is nothing like giving yourself a deadline to make things happen! There is an art event I am participating in soon so the fire is lit.
Just about all of my small collection of work over the last few years has been on paper that I have made from shredded bills etc. The paper is great because it is sturdy enough of take acrylic paint, but thin enough to go through the printer and sew to. It can be torn - glued to - and glued on. Sometimes something beautiful that I wasn't expecting comes out of experimentation and a "sketch" turns into a tiny formal piece that I just couldn't reproduce if I tried and I don't think it would work any other way. This is a close up of one of those. Just about to finish it up.
