power in numbers

the nucleus gallery in alhambra has this thing every year where a whole bunch of people do little 5x7 pieces and sell them at a show and part of the proceeds go to the 'make a wish' foundation'. I did a paper cut out. I wanted to use tissue paper, but i couldn't find any i liked, so i used markers on velum and cut that out instead. It turns out to be a pretty good process, cause you can get sort of soft variation in the colours, and velum is really sturdy, so i could cut out all those little notches without messing up the paper. it's called 'two bears and a sunrise'.
