Well, I’ve finally made some updates to my gallery pages! WordPress makes it easier than I thought. Although I’m sure I will be continually tweaking, at least I now have a better range of work showing in a more interesting layout than before. I’m excited to introduce a couple of recent new pieces. These made their debut at the Seattle Polish Festival a couple of weeks ago.
The one to the right is inspired by a traditional wycinanki style showing forest (“las”) scenes. I call it the Mushroom Picker. I’ve been wanting to do a larger than usual piece in
this style. This one is 20″ x 30″ (framed to 32″ x 43″), cut from a single sheet of paper. You can check out my FaceBook page to see images of this work in progress.
The one below is inspired by the layered wycinanki of Poland’s Lowicz region. I wanted to create something bursting with color! In our back yard, we often see screaming jays with their crested heads searching for something to eat. These bold birds decided to stop by for a visit in my garden scene too.
Thanks for checking them out!
