An assemblage of wood that I cut as though drawing freehand. I was thinking about the classical idea of the “line of beauty.” It was interesting that the pieces seemed to naturally flow together.

Then I assembled the arrangement with nails and glue. After trying many colors, it seemed to feel best painted a neutral off white.

This is an assemblage of flat 1/4” luan plywood pieces. I shaped them with a scroll saw and finally, finally sanded them smooth after learning about using wood filler and sanding sealer on luan. It’s very grainy and splintery. Then I painted the pieces with Montana acrylic spray paint and glued them all together.

It received honorable mention in the Garrison Art Center’s smallWORKS 2 1/2D show which is opening this Saturday.
