Experiments with Green

The creation of lime green
paper took a lot longer than
I imagined.
Linocut on handmade paper, June 2013
The more I experiment 
with recycled
papers, the less I
feel I really know.

A few papers look, feel, and tear 
the same; however, when I break
down their fibers, I discover their
chemistry is different.  (I am keeping
a record of these types of papers and
will post at some point. )
Finding the perfect shade:
Experiment with green paper 
The experiments with creating
green, blue, 
black, and brown papers 
are coming along well.  

I also printed on 
a core log.  My next
task is to integrate 
the handmade sheets with
the core logs.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
