Foraged Ink Landscapes

Some colors I recently made have inspired a few new pieces.

Earlier this fall was poke-berry season, whose fruits ooze an astounding magenta when freshly squeezed, and mellow into a rich russet-burgundy as the ink oxidizes.

Also discovered some nice earth colors in the silty runoff of various parking lots. When combined with the copper oxide, walnut, rust, and acorn iron inks, some nice combinations occur.

Through August.

Approaching Relocation

Sadly, after four years, I will be leaving the Torpedo Factory Art Center, and my fabulous studio on the Potomac. June 30 will the turnover, when artist Marilynn Spindler will be taking over my half of Studio 306. The illustrious James Dean will be keeping up his half, sharing with her a love of architectural painting.  Please come by and visit, if you’re in Alexandria.
