Description

The image of California is laser cut from paper from an old children’s school reader. I place the cutout on top of a blank paper and color the cutout and the paper beneath with tempera paint stick.

The image is 5 x 7 inches matted to fit an 8 x 10 inch frame. Made by hand and laser, with love, in Sacramento, California.
