Zygote's special event with Adrienne Lichliter that evening. The energy at Zygote is welcoming and exciting as they always work on improvements. Adrienne loves Asian papers, so it was a treat to meet her first at the Morgan and show her our papers before her wood litho demo.
This week, I'm playing catch up and writing a massive article while preparing for my own show (in less than a month!), a hanji forum in NYC (in just a few weeks!), and a trip to meet Patterson Clark at SUNY Fredonia (next week!). My eyes are on the milkweed pods, trying to decide when I'll harvest and freeze them for my November milkweed papermaking class. Next week, I'll help out at a yellow-flag iris eradication, harvesting the leaves and stems, and felt better yesterday morning deadheading flowers for dyes in the morning before anyone arrived.
Lately, I've seen so many monarchs downtown and in urban places where I don't expect them. I like to think we helped a little with our milkweed. Here are some wonderful images of their migration through town.
