Let Peace, Reign. (2022)

15 Dec

I don’t know about you, but I sure feel like our world needs a little peace these days. I am personally praying for peace in our world, in my community, and in my own heart.

This piece is part of a series of paper cutouts that I started a month or so ago. I am deriving such great joy working with this new technique.

Sherehe (2022)

Felt this new paper cutout abstract piece conveys the idea of celebration. In Swahili, one word for celebration is, “Sherehe.”

What a beautiful word for the beautiful human experience of enjoying & expressing life’s joy-filled moments.

This one is entitled, “The Bell Tolls.” I love the vibrancy of the colors and lines here juxtaposed with the black background. This piece delights me.

Another Matisse inspired construction paper cutout piece. So rewarding to make these colorful shapes and lines with scissors and paper. First true wave of new inspiration in a long, long time for me.

“Drawing with scissors…” work #5. Henri Matisse, near the end of his life & career, started creating art images from gouache painted pieces of paper & then cutting those colorful pages into shapes & designs. That technique has been truly inspiring to me. Really enjoying playing with my construction paper cutouts.
