Experimenting With Alcohol

Experimenting With Alcohol

Today is my first time experimenting with alcohol inks. These are fun. I painted on glass, on both sides. I could see doing a series of little light boxes of these things. Maybe even multiple layers of glass. A different kind of stained glass.

Added some color to this one. I think a few more black lines may be on order before it’s done. Going to let it sit for a bit and come back to it and see what feels right.

I started to add more to this piece I started a couple weeks back. Picked up a compass that had a bigger holder so I could use it with microns. It’s a cheap plastic piece of junk, so I’m on the hunt for a more pro one with greater stability. But I managed to get these circles on without pulling out too much of my hair. I think I will add watercolor to it next. Stay tuned.

In the midst of the chaos

In the midst of the chaos

In the midst of the chaos the creativity continues. These geometric watercolors are becoming a centering meditative practice for me. Exploring pattern giving rise to form and color. Establishing a little order in a corner of my mind as I listen and integrate to what’s going on around me. Deepening my ability to identify the connections. Creating a mental place from which to move back out and engage from a peaceful center of clarity.

Return the well. Share the refreshment. Rinse. Repeat.

Building out another geometric design.

Building out another geometric design. As usual I’m starting with a flower of life pattern underlay. From that comes metatron’s cube from which all geometries can be constructed. The intersecting triangles which form the Star of David pattern contain the basic four alchemical symbols for the elements and are also the divine intersection of masculine and feminine. The compass and ruler working together are also a marriage of the masculine and feminine energies. If the parallel angled lines of the star are extended out we get the letter “X”. If we contain the edges of the circles into concentric circles within, we get the letter “O”. These letters are also commonly associated with love and sex. Perhaps this is why?

Third post in this current series of my sketches of Spain. This one is of children playing in the plaza in Astorga.

You can’t travel there IRL now but you can through the power of art. The children played in the square while we enjoyed café con leche and riscuros with my in laws and new friends Bertrand and Basia. The later own and live in a delightful creative retreat center @floresdelcamino_retreats along the Camino in the neighboring village of Castrillo de Los Polvarez.
That village is preserved in the old 16th century style including the stone road you are not allowed to drive in on unless you live there. $40 for an 11×17 unframed, hand signed print, plus $15 to ship it anywhere in the US. Free local contactless delivery in the 828.

Message me if you want one. Other sizes availible, just ask.
