**JUROR'S CHOICE AWARD WINNER 2015 ROGUE VALLEY BIENNIAL EXHIBITION**
Signed and titled on the front
This is a large piece, comprised of thousands of rolls of hand-painted and tied spools of paper. Hundreds of hours went into the creation of Magnetic, beginning with cutting large sheets of fine white paper into strips of varying widths. Each strip is then painted (yes, I even painted the white paper with white paint to be sure the tone was even!), then each strip was rolled up and hand-tied with black thread. All those little spools were then affixed to the lovely background sheet of black handmade paper. The overall effect is a white background with black dots being drawn into the middle of the piece, as if being pulled towards center by a magnet.
