Fields - Drainage Ditch by cloutierj
Fields - Drainage Ditch
The large version.  I started with the idea of the drainage ditches that cut through the fields and woods, straight in the level land, with brush at their edges, then just played around with paper and lines and textures till my eyes were happy.

And here's the full-size version of the woodlot.  24 inches high.  Those shadow-trees took a lot of cutting.

lokta, Thai Momi marble, sugar cane paper, unryu cloud paper flax paper for the surround.

I wanted to try making the cutout trees lighter than their background, instead of shadows.  i like it, but it does need a good light to make them show up.  i love using the deckled edges of the paper for the distant treeline, or the rough growth at the edges of fields.

lokta, Thai momi marble, sugar cane paper, unryu cloud paper, flax paper for the surround.

One more - letting the sky color come down and be the water, too.

Woodlot - Small
This was the experimental piece before I did a larger Woodlot.  The trees are cut out of two layers of lokta, one slightly darker in color, then glued together just slightly out of line, to make subtle shadows.  The background for the trees is the same as the top layer.  Subtle. 

Lokta, Thai Momi marble, sugar cane fiber, and flax paper.

Is it enough to just say "Tired - busy - hi-I'm-glad-you're-here,-but-I-can't-think-of-much-to-say"  ?

No.  More than that.  Let me see - Garden is shutting down for the long, cold winter.  No apples this year.  Busy at work (enough about that).  My nephew has been coming over for the last few weeks to learn woodblock printing, Japanese-style (also known as "moku hanga".  I'm a very inexpert amateur, but I did take a class once.  It's been fun getting out those tools again.  I made small runs of a few prints, and want to do some more. 

I hope you all have something to be glad and thankful for, whether or not you are in a place that celebrates Thanksgiving Day this month!

Hi there! Just wanted to say that your paperwork is amazing! :) It has a unique touch to it. And has that special sort of "magic" and whimsy in them. The shapes and rhythm and colours are just so interesting and wonderful.
