Well, I couldn't resist! This was done on a deli paper covered with acrylic pattern that had gold and red
as the dominant hue. I thought the line alone would get lost, so I added a light gold and white highlights with a little diluted ink for the shadows. I have given more depth to subsequent images (which I will post in the coming days). I was concerned that it wouldn't look right with the images done with just ink. Fortunately, when intermingled with the others, they have a cohesive quality. These do not have to be hung in order of completion. If will be an interesting shuffling act when I am ready to put the entire 49 panels together.
Tonight is a meeting of the artists that are participating in the 50/50 show. I am looking forward to seeing what others are doing. So far I have only seen my friend, Leslie Lambert's work. Love what she is doing. Can't wait to see some of the others. I think it will be a violation to photograph tonight, so I will have to wait until the show opens to share images with all of you.
In the meantime, perhaps you might want to consider doing a series of small works, yourself. It is presents some interesting problems to be solved. Solving problems creates growth.
