The saying is in Aspen you either have 3 houses or 3 jobs. Well, here's a sampling of one of those jobs. I built a  papier-mâché tree for a private client about 15 years ago.


After the grand kids and the occasional all too curious guest the tree needed a bit of a touch up.

 The original intent was to make the structural beam into something more interesting than a beam. There were two ways  to go with that idea- try and “paint the beam white and you won’t see it as much"- or make it "more".  I'm a dive in and make it more kind of person....

It's all scraps of paper

and paint
