The Cutting Board

Have you ever imagined what it would look like when:

- A Leafy Seadragon hid in a hollowed sea plant

- Got stuck at the Barnacles colony with a few Sea Urchin as neighbour

I think it would look like this .... :)

20120926 Seadragon
Seadragon (45cm x 32cm / 18" x 12.5")

20120926 Barnacles

20120926 Sea Urchin

20120926 Seadragon CU

This cut took me close to 4-weeks to finish. Not sure if it was because of me being a very cautious cutter who cuts at snail pace!?!.  Or because workplace had suck up most of my energy that there were nights which I could only concentrate to cut for an hour before sleep overcame me.

How I dream of some days in the future when I could spend all my time on cuttings!  (sigh) While I have the faintest idea of how to make such dream comes true, I'm to continue to work on my cuts.  Maybe in time, it will become so good that some one will come along and say something like this:

- We love your cuts and want you to join a group show!

- Are your cuts for sale?  We'd like to pay $$$ for it?

Alright I'm definitely dreaming now. It's time to come back to reality and here I come ... my next cut!

Cheers and stay creative! :)
