Faces in the Forest

 Somebody who walks the same path I do has been scattering leaf faces in the woods.
 They are delightful to find. Such a simple surprise.
Maybe this is a bit of child's play, like the trick of blowing through one's cupped hands with a blade of grass as a reed to make the sound of a duck. Or making daisy chain necklaces. Does anyone remember other "naturecrafts"?
These walks in the forest are influencing me. Here's the beginning of the the latest Codex Canadensis piece. It measures about 52 inches long and 32 inches high.
