IN WHICH I SHIFT FOCUS
The drive to blend colors remains strong. I have found a great outlet for this, one in which my lack of skill at painting is not of great concern: playing with alcohol inks. The inks are similar to water colors, but they are much more independent and harder to control. My approach is to drop, blow, streak, and dapple the inks in a way that pleases me. Too much fun!
In the painting above I impressed a crocheted doily into the inks while they were still wet. (This proves that I haven't given up needlework yet, right?)
I have an Etsy store for my work, and have already sold a set of coasters, pictured below. A Four Seasons Quadtych. HERE IS THE LINK to the store. It's called Sara's Colorwave Dreams!
