Black and White


Lillian, Paige and Sophie india ink on 96# stock 4" x 6" each

The ink is black the page is white. Here are three of 30 little ink drawings I did yesterday afternoon. They are my practice with drawing. I rarely allow my students to use an eraser and often ask them to draw with sharpie or ink. Why would I do differently for myself? (My husband and I call these sketches of mine ... blobbies) Something for Inspire me Thursday too!


arctic spring monotype/foamcut/ink 16" x 20"

This image is a monotype mixed with two foam cut prints and ink drawings. Feeling a bit under the weather today so I think I will enjoy the garden and cool summer breezes here. Hope you are too!

The word for the day is ... stark ... as in the reality of the situation, the contrast of black on white and the ultimate in design concept (my favorite!)

Your three ladies make me think of cameos! They have the look of elegant, Victorian fashion designs. Pretty:>

Hope you feel better soon, Susan. I love the foam cut print: so primal and tribal looking. Right up my alley!
