Keep it simple


black and sepia inks on w/c paper, 10 X 11″

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.  -Lao Tse

Take a piece of tissue paper.  Crinkle it up and place it on the paper. Squirt some ink on the tissue. Roll over it with a brayer. Now use the same tissue paper to print more ink marks on the paper. Keep it simple. Dip a home made bamboo pen in the ink and add a quote.


Now take it one step further and draw on it a bit with a water soluble pencil. Paint a whisper glaze of dilute acrylic. Keep it simple.

The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful.  – E.E. Cummings
