Awakening – paper cut / sculpture

this is no 2 in the series, when the day light lengthens and mother awakens from slumber, slowly new life begins its upward journey from the darkness, shoots burst through the soil and buds burst open upon the tree, like white frothy lace adorning the the branches,tree-awakening-2tree-awakening-2-detail

Slumber – paper cut / sculpture

since my previous posting I have been hard at it with scalpel, my new scissors and reams of paper !…………………..   this one is the first in series of 4 trees, all reflecting the cycles of life.  This first one is the winter, when mother earth rests in deepest slumber.  The day light hours are short while she takes stock and replenishes herself in readiness for the vigours of spring.
