MARGARET MERRITT:  Printmaker and Papermaker
LET'S GO! #3
2008
Stenciled paper
5.5" x 11" (image), 11" x 14" (mat)
I hope that this image captures some of the exuberance of starting a day here in the mountains of New Hampshire.

I sprayed pigmented cotton pulp through a stencil onto a base sheet of kozo paper to form the image in this artwork.

Papermaker Andrea Petersen taught me this paper stenciling technique in a 2008 workshop at Paper & Book Intensive, an annual "working sabbatical" for book artists, conservationists, and papermakers.

The finished piece is mounted on a white cotton rag mat of archival quality.
