Dense on the Ground
You might recognize these drawings from a few weeks ago-- water pickeral seed pods from Beaver Lake swampy place. I redrew them today in preparation for a trip to the copy center tomorrow where I will enlarge them slightly for use in a woodcut I'm working on. I expect the real pods have by now disintegrated and sunk to the bottom of the marsh where they'll hunker down in the ooze for the winter.
On the right side of the page is a piece of staghorn sumac with a slightly magnified seed. Nit a very exciting post, I know, but tomorrow I'll document ink making and post a recipe!
