necessity is the mother of invention

One day, when I was totally out of washi postcards, I cut up some old file folders (stiff, thick, non-absorbent paper) into postcard-sized rectangles, and drew --with crayons!-- very rough renditions of some of the new spring growth in my yard. The sample posted here is of fiddlehead ferns, the curled baby shoots that grow out from the center of the withered remains of the previous year's ostrich ferns. Then I brushed sumi ink over the drawing, and this is the result. The words were added with a black marker. Different. Maybe even cool. : )
