an art gesture a day (aagad!) - day fifteen...




picking the last of the mulberries 


squishing and straining the mulberries to make mulberry ink...




 mulberry ink and freeform calligraphy 

a gift for the mulberry bush 

(it might be just a bush in the poem - but it's a tree in the orchard!)
