Water Scrolls, Mapping the New Haven

Canoeing in Lincoln Pond, with my son Orion, we paddled through water weeds each with a finely etched drawing through the surface. A tiny organism was eating a unique drawing in each leaf. These leaves were yellow green or maroon...about
an inch and a half. We collected several to dry. Later I used them as a resist in monoprinting.
