Thinking inside the Box.

One project I dreamt about, and have really enjoyed seeing it come together is my box painting. Using a deep set frame I painted a backdrop and then cut out a watercolored giraffe cycling and placed it in the foreground. Using straight pins to keep the cycling giraffe from falling onto the background and a small dab of clear glue by the wheels, it seems to hold together quite nicely. These giraffes are replications of cyclists I have seen.

A while back, last year, maybe October…I visited the Dansmuseet, Dance Museum of Stockholm and they had windows on display with paper cut-out people that danced to different types of music…..and I was enchanted….and apparently inspired.
