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.  You can see more of my scissors paintings on my website: http://www.marthawakefield.com/
