Pothos

pathosSumi ink, acrylic, image transfer, water soluble oil pastel

Pathos:  from the Greek “pothos” – an indescribable longing for something beyond

It starts young and in the family way – and all the best novels and poetry and music and paintings are about it.  And so, continuing the theme of rewrites on history, the word Pothos (see the ghost of it underneath it all?) painted on with a big soft Sumi type brush, was the launching of this piece-  added to with some rediscovered family photos.

If you want to try some of these mixed media techniques with me, check out my summer workshop next month here at my studio/garden in Sebastopol, California.
