OrigamiUSA's Annual Convention

The exhibits at OrigamiUSA's annual convention in New York City were amazing. I was blown away by all the talent in the room. These flowers look real both up close and from a distance.

I was impressed with this black couch, accent pillows, and throw rug. It's amazing what an artist can do with paper.

 I overheard a person mentioning that these insects were anatomically correct. Look at all those details.

Now this is my kind of paper folding! George Washington always looks fabulous on anything his face appears on. Check out those rings.

This life-size dragon sculpture will give you an idea of how talented these origami artists are. I'd imagine you'd need a huge studio or workspace to fold paper this large.

Don't fear the reaper.

The two sculptures in the back remind me of doughnuts.

We were blessed with a beautiful day in New York City on Saturday.
