Some Art

medium : alcohol ink on yupo

The small measure of control I have to take the inks in a certain direction, coupled with them largely exercising their own agency, makes for a complicated relationship, to say the least.  A little love, a little hate.  And ultimately, most richly, surrender.

The woman who bought this first painting shared it in a workshop, where she asked her attendees what they saw. The various answers only affirmed what is most powerful about the abstract realm; that we each glean what shows up for us; what we need in the moment.

“Beauty in the unmanifest, infinite possibilities”
“core of darkness reaching out to be brought to light”
“nature and the outdoors”
“underwater world”
“mermaid fairy with a flower”
“hummingbird with the spirit of a dragon”
and quite possibly my favorite… “a gathering of monks.”

Enjoy.

These alcohol inks are the newest medium I’m playing with these days.  My other dabblings have included acrylic painting on canvas, handcrafted dolls, digital art / graphic design, the odd miscellaneous craft (glass mosaics, dream catchers, etc) and video art.

A more comprehensive portfolio of my various art forms can be found on my website.
