Time off

A little time off from work has allowed me to get back to collage for a few days! I'm working on a piece for some friends of mine, K. and J., but there's still more to go (the above photo shows the piece in progress) -- trying to emulate Klimt with paper and not with paint takes serious time! But I'm very pleased to get the opportunity to use my new scissors from Germany that are specially made for scherenschnitte and silhouettes. I'm glad to have the chance to mix collage with scherenschnitte for this project... will definitely do more of this in the future.

Here's the final result!
