If you follow me on facebook, you have been updated on the progress of this new piece. I have cut paper into 540 tiny little circles. It is slow and tedious work, but as the hours tick away in the studio, I am gradually able to see the results. It is very satisfying to see the work pay off. Here are some more process shots.

Can you guess what color is coming next? I am excited to wake up tomorrow and get back to work on this piece. I will share more soon as the piece progresses (with something better than cell phone photos, too).
