Sculpture and Paper Cuts

 This paper cut was designed for the Oregon Association of Nurseries for the FARWEST show, 
I wonder if it's the first paper cut of a tractor?
 It was a challenge to incorporate elements of the nursery business into a unified whole, that's why
a paper cut is the perfect solution. Everything is tied to everything else. The real work is to keep the negative space as interesting as the positive. Look at the hanging baskets of fuschias on the middle right for a layering of figure / ground.

Corrections asked by my clients were to change the root ball on the conifer to reflect industry standards, and to redesign the tractor to use fork lift attachments for the pallet.
Can you find the garden gnome?
I wondered if it would raise an eyebrow.... they liked it. You?
