About This Artwork: I made with little pieces of pattern paper--all cut by hand. I probably did not need to do that, but I did. They were mostly cut from notches and all the sized of fingernail clippings. I sprinkled them over the horizon line and stems, then glued them in place and painted over them. The hand-cut watercolor pods come off the painting about a half-inch. I had fun making this one, but it took a long time.
