Arting for 365 Day 81: Fluorescent Cut Out Abstraction

Goal: To create one work of art each day for 365 consecutive days

I believe it was in the eighth grade that I worked lovingly on a detailed drawing, and halfway through, spilled food on it. I didn’t throw the work away and I actually don’t remember being too upset about it (my parents may remind me otherwise). Instead I simply covered the food stain by drawing an image of some sort over it.
I have held tight to the notion that something is only a “mess up” if you aren’t willing to change course.
Yesterday, a few minor botches in cutting started adding up to big botches. I took my own advice and changed course. Flipping my paper over in order to more easily ignore my original design, I began cutting freestyle. The result is this flowing cut paper design that I feel is a success.

This 8 x 10″ piece (super fluorescent but the pic didn’t capture it) will be available for purchase eventually. Right now I’m running a race in Washington! I’ll put it on Etsy when I get back.
