One more experimental piece -

"A Handmade Paper"
digitally manipulated photograph by Mick Mather
It was my youngest granddaughter's birthday yesterday - she's 5 now - and I had little time to accomplish a new work for today's post. So, I'm putting up the last image that came about from the January 22nd post to Thursday Challenge for the theme of experimental. Over the years I've made reams of handmade paper with a few sheets here and there that were color composites. They looked a lot like this piece. Well, gotta run, there's still some Birthday Cake left!

Birthday cake???? Is it your birthday? If so, happy birthday!
And if not, happy to whoever it may concern.

This handmade paper is so beautiful, one couldn't write or draw on it.

clapboards. waves lapping over pebbles, and overlapping, on a quiet lake...

that's what this brought to my mind the minute i opened the page.

movement. it's one of the 'things' i like about visual art...the way light can imply movement.

comment moderation | why doesn't blogger do like wordpress, and allow us to let some posters in while blocking the spammers?

Yum, that cake was delicious!

It was my little granddaughter's birthday and she's five. After the cake, Poppa was invited to a tea party to immediately break in one of the gifts. I bet this paper would've made a perfect place mat ... instead, we got yelled at by her Daddy for staining the coffee table. We spilled a lot of tea alright! :)

Thanks for making connections to all of those things. As far as the blocker is concerned, I despise them as much when used on blogger as I do at wordpress ... besides, if I don't want a post to go up, I can simply delete it. On the other hand, if I was getting a lot of spam, I might feel very different about this issue.

I like this a lot , minimalist waterlillies or the hum of a dragonfly. Summer cool, low humidity, at peace.

Thanks for your comments. My best.

What you said! I like all of these analogies. No need to thank me, I'll be dropping by your place on a regular basis.
