Norwegian Cottage Garden – Blooms #2
India ink and surface alteration on paper. 16″ x 20″
This is another one I began in Norway last August, and finished only a week ago. When I started back in on it, I doubted it had a chance. In fact this picture was a mess, but do you know what? Sometimes my very best moves come when there’s nothing to lose. And I’m always surprised by how close the tipping point is between a picture failing and succeeding. It often comes down to no more than a few brush strokes or just a bit of fussing.
I’m trying very hard these days to always sling ink as if there’s nothing to lose. It ought to be easy, but nope, it’s not!
