New 3D Work

Here's a piece that I started back in March, but really didn't like where it was going.   After having some time to figure it out, I re-dyed most of the paper from pink to earthier tones and came up with what you see. It's handmade paper, made from dollar store tp, of course!
Additionally, I like to find a similarity between the work I'm making and naturally-occurring things that already exist. If I can see how nature treats the problems of composition, texture, grouping, hue, and other formal properties, the information directs my new decision.

This piece is called what it looks like, Trichomes, which are fine outgrowths, hairs, or appendages on plants and certain protists, but you already knew that!
