The Papermakers of Victoria exhibition 'It's Only a Paper Moon' is almost over, it has gone really well with lots of visitors and a few sales. I got a notice in our local paper and the Whitehorse one too, I hope people weren't offended that the articles were all about me. I did give others the opportunity to send their own press releases.
Here are some gallery shots:- Two of my pieces are in the background here.
Two views of the Yabbers piece. Another of my pieces is in the background of the back of the yabbers banner.
My Time and Tide piece is in the front of this cabinet.

I'm working on paper for a project I intend to submit for 'Shared Journeys', next year's PoV exhibition and have just finished making the paper from the hemp for the Higher Ground Gathering in Kuranda. The raw hemp was not breaking up in my beater was just getting very stringy so I took it to Box Hill and put it through the Valley beater and it came out almost overbeaten. The first picture shows a stack of the raw hemp paper with some paper made from hemp fabric and the second picture has the light shining through the paper.
I've also popped in a picture of Daughter and dog, just for fun.
