Lately








This is what I've been working on lately. More small poured acrylics to show as a group, a large poured acrylic with ink rubbing, and some drawings and paintings. I'm exploring using Pelican fountain pen ink, which I find very versatile. I like to add the ink, let it dry a bit, then wash the paper and add more ink. The layers are interesting to me, so I'll keep going with this process. And pink always seems to find a way into my work no matter what I have in mind. The second painting down is already in my Etsy shop, here, and I will add the Chemex drawing and the last two drawings in the next couple of days. I'd like to add the larger painting to the shop, but just don't know if I could make the expense of shipping work for everybody.

Beautiful work! I really love the kraft paper/paper bag piece. I love using/seeing ordinary materials used in a new way. Also love how you used drawing and painting together. It almost looks like a large doodle or automatic drawing. I use similar circular shapes in my work and really feel a connection to these pieces!
Thanks for sharing!

I just realized it is a coffee filter! Cool!!

Thanks Cynthia! Chemex coffee filters are good surfaces for drawing. And I also like the re-use aspect.

Thank you kathryn! I like that paper, oddly enough. Something about the way it takes ink.
