Spring 2003 - Cut-out - 92cm x 38cm

Originally this was a parting gift for a friend that I did in white crayons on black paper. But after having finished it (and given to him) I redid the picture, this time as a cut-out. I still liked the picture but I also wanted to do something new. Well, I did no cut out since kindergarten, I guess...

This is really incredible! I love the intense, dynamic use of positive and negative space and tone.. the shapes within the white of the moon, breaking out with the shapes that form the wings and tail... A really beautiful piece. Using only the strongest contrast of black and white, you have captured the feel of the piece perfectly! I admire your talent! 1

I love styled pics like that, it doesn't always have to be fine and exact to be a masterpiece!

:-) Esther S. Brendel (Maiden name: Esther S. Wetzel) replies: "Me too, I like b/w art very much, especially cut-outs. Though I'm a bloody beginner at that technique."

Oh wow, this is stunning! I love the contrast and simple detail. An amazing job!

:-) Esther S. Brendel (Maiden name: Esther S. Wetzel) replies: "Thank you Alana! I should do more cut-outs. They are good composition practice. And I like the strong contrast of them as well. 2"

Hey you know what? This would be AWESOME as a jack-o-lantern carving. Great job. I feel like I should say something constructive but it's so good that I can't think of anything so I guess just thanks for sharing this little piece of coolness with all of us out here in the internet world. 2

Sweet effects!!

:-) Esther S. Brendel (Maiden name: Esther S. Wetzel) replies: "Thank you very much! And sorry for the late reply. Life was just too busy for me during the last months to hang around in Elfwood."

such a beautiful image, the simplicity of the black and white is wonderful and makes the concept of the design seem all the more amazing

Wow, this is really amazing! It has such a wonderful mood to it, almost as if the two are meeting secretly in the dead of night by the light of the full moon.
