Urban Art - by Shell

Inspired by cut out art and a wonderful quote by George Eliot (1819 - 1880) here's a peek at my urban art experiment. I had much fun creating it and am rather inspired to make time for more (thanks little fox!).
With the weather over here rather unpredictable (snow today..woo hoo!), I've decided to laminate it before finding it an urban home. Here's a close-up sneak peek in the meantime. The final cut out has 'george eliot' credited at the bottom of the pic. I'll post more pics soonest... ^_^

Cool! Very Robert Ryan. I sent you his link didn't I? If I haven't check him out. He's in London so you could go see some of his work in galleries there I'm sure!
And what a fantastic quote. I'm going to print this one out and put it up on my new mood board. It doesn't hurt to be reminded to smile! :)

Shell, you rock at cutouts! A definate rival to Robert Ryan i say :) I like the organic shapes and way you've composed the quote, melding into an artwork of its own. I'd be most inspired to read this on a street corner in London-town!
