more paper

i came home and walked wendy 
to her delight
 then made a few hosta sheets 
wet, greenish. 
i dry these on boards
they are very high shrinkage, so when they start to peel 
and they always do
(almost)
i'll bring them in the house and use blotters and weight to finish drying.
vat still hostaful
guardian of the paper mill
(not pleased by the camera)
 we went back out to check
 saw a surprise
was seen by a surprise
(besides the greening meadow)
curiosity

i haven't seen deer all winter like last year, this one (there were three) was last year's fawn. young and curious.

I love the pattern the drying paper makes on the boards. looks like patchwork, the colours are warm with arashi shibori wood patterns
