Something Amazing

A while ago I told you that I loved papercutting. The art to follow goes so far beyond papercutting that it deserves a name of its own. Hope you enjoy.

Below is a collection of entries for an art contest at the Hirshorn Modern Art Gallery in Washington D.C. The rule was that the artist could use only one sheet of paper. I could not find the artists names published anywhere.

Wow! Super talent on display here! Do you get Victoria magazine? They have a resident artist who is a paper artist - sillhouetes to be exact. They are stunning too! If you can't find her, let me know and I will rummage around for her name. I think you would love her!

Tangobaby,
You are funny: make you one... I do not have such skills. However, I make an incredible paper snowflake. That's about the extent of that particular talent of mine.


Maddie,
I love that anyone would think I could make one of these. Really, I don't have many talents that reside in my hands. My biggest talent is appreciation. I am good at finding the talents in others and sharing them. All in all, not a bad talent to have.


Laura,
I adore Victoria Magazine. Her name is Sharyn Sowell and I love her work. I hope to own a custom piece some day.


Bethenais,
I am so glad you stopped by and found something to brighten your day. That's what I love most about blogging, the chance to share the sunshine and joy. The chance to gather joy and beauty from other people. Happy day to you.

Oldies, but Goodies
