"The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
I do paintings and drawings mostly but I also do a lot of cutting out of things. They end up looking like flowers or stars. I cut up playboy centerfolds I cut up books as I read them I try to memorize the images and words as I cut them up when I look at them later I vaguely remember. I like advent calendars as you open the little windows and peek in at a picture. I put things in the centers sometimes a background of a photo where the people have been cut away. I know them and their story but all that is there is some water or a tree.
