|Here is the montage I used to propose "first |
thoughts" about the project to Marlene.
Her husband Doug had written a poem for their wedding, which she loved for its imagery and beauty. Their anniversary was approaching, and she wondered if I could use paper sculpture techniques to compliment the poem.
|This was part of a "progress report"|
I sent while working on the piece.
As you know if you read my post, "The Evolution of a Paper Sculpture," it can take months or even years for me to bring all the pieces together--literally.
Marlene was wise enough to know this, and ask about the idea several months in advance. I began to work, gradually building the piece around the poem. Doug has been gracious enough to let me share images that include the poem.
I am happy to report that I was able to finish the piece and ship it to the Sullivans in time for their anniversary. Here's a photo of the finished artwork, which I titled "Where Two Paths Join." I took this picture just before I boxed it up for shipping! (That's why you can see a faint reflection of me in the glass).
