Tree Stands on Kozo

I just started printing the new tree stands work in platinum/palladium on thin handmade Japanese paper, and they are turning out better than I imagined (as soon as I got used to working on something with the texture and strength of wet kleenex). I have been wanting to make platinum prints on Kozo paper for a few years now due to the rich blacks and silk-like reflectance of the darker tones, but never felt like I had an appropriate reason or subject matter for it. I am working on more throughout the Spring and Summer, but here are a few from the printing session last week.
