Fruit
Walnut Ink on Watercolur Paper
2006


I really love the deep tones of this ink. When applied thick it is almost black, like spring soil ready for planting. The thinner washes have a beautiful sepia glow that brings to mind Autumn leaves and mid-winter trees, whispering wisdom and deep knowledge.

The ink itself seemed to dictate this new series of work. I simply followed the brush.

Chocolate covered coffee beans are everyone's favorite, of course.
