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.

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.

Spain Sketch Print: Jardin de La Sinagoga in Astorga, Spain

Spain Sketch Print: Jardin de La Sinagoga in Astorga, Spain

This print of my sketch of the Jardin de La Sinagoga in Astorga, Spain is about to go to its new home.

You can’t travel there now IRL but you can through the power of art. This park sits atop a wall that surround the city of Astorga, built by the Roman’s in 14 BC. The city was a primary outpost militarily, as repository for the gold mining operation and one of the first Bishops of the Roman catholic church. It is one of the cities through which one pases if they are a pilgrim on the Camino de Santiago.

The light there is different from here. The sky remains a lavender color for a much longer duration than we have here in Asheville and the sunsets such as the one from this moment are much more golden. $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.

Here’s a watercolor tile pattern I completed recently. I’ve really been diving into geometric designs and a pattern is a logical next step from those.

Stay tuned for some more progress on this and a fun little application of it in pattern form.
