Last week I rushed back from Maine to get this painting framed. It only took cutting three 6-ply mats to get one perfect for this work. Scissor was recently juried into the WGBH art auction by Larry Powers of Powers Gallery. I am very excited to be part of this event as I am a big fan of WGBH and public radio.
This work is a watercolor on a full sheet of 300 lb cold press watercolor paper. Objects from our personal history can show up in interesting ways in our paintings. This series I painted in 2008 and links me to my past profession - the fashion industry where scissors are a prime tool.
