Medium: Cut paper on Watercolor paper
Size of Original: 8×10″
Framed with cream mat and wooden frame.
An original Cut Paper work on hot press watercolor paper, by Rachel, using small pieces of up-cycled magazine paper from several sources, adhered to watercolor paper with satin medium and varnished with satin UVL varnish to prevent fading.
This radial composition is a swirl of colors and tones -flowers, leaves, polka dots, and water- with a pair of hands emerging with a braided rope, a small compass, jewels, flower petals, and wet stones. A small “passeport” tag hangs delicately from a bracelet on one wrist. Navigation, sorting through chaos to find order, and other interpretations are fitting for this piece. Framed in a wooden frame with a satin metallic sheen.
