I taught papermaking at Ghost Ranch one summer and we gathered native plant materials to add to the pulp. I had a small bag of my dog Lucca's hair, black and curly so I added it into a vat of pulp and mixed it in before I pulled a few sheets of paper onto the molds. It was a delightful blend of black and natural abaca and cotton.
Years later I created this Sunflower woodcut with a monochromatic scheme in mind and put in the shape of the lower center flower with Lucca's paper. I love how it came out and sadly, ( not really) the original is now sold to a collector.

Note: a 1" white unprinted border is added to the measurement of this artwork
