Yes, I love to show you pretty faces, and this one, not the usual, but she struck me as sublime– surrender with a flourish.
Artist Husband's Love
Rose petals also surrender for my husband. Leroy Parker, instituted handmade paper making at San Jose State University twenty-six years ago. He adores the medium and especially loves imbedding rose petals in the pulp, which he makes from kozo, iris, flax, palm, pineapple, and other exotic fibers. He does all sorts of things with the paper and even lets me use it.
After Christmas, I always wish I had sent cards to people I love. I never seem to be in the spirit or have the time during the holidays. This year I thought that if I start early maybe I could swing it.
I'm not sure how this card on a string idea evolved, but now I can't stop making them. Hung on the wall, they're little art works. Each one is different too. But oops, I put six in the mail today– how can I possibly wait until December? And how nice to see rose petals in January.
