Leon Polk Smith

imageOkay, I am officially inspired by the lithographs at the Amon Carter Museum by Leon Polk Smith. What appeals to me is the idea of using paper and a pair of scissors to create designs. I’m not saying that’s what Smith did, just that I could. I really enjoyed doing that for the piece that I call Journey, Journey and I should probably use that concept more often. So, in that regard, this exhibit inspired me to cut more! For Journey, I used the cutouts enlarged, warts and all, for the cartoon, perhaps another indication that I need to “let loose.”

You can see more pictures of Smith’s work here and read about him here.
