In my latest alcohol ink paintings, I have been experimenting with various shades of blue. The result is a cool, refreshing scene, fluid as water with precious earth minerals. The hints of amber provide an interesting contrast to the bright tones of cyan. Congruous with freshwater habitats in the mountains of western North Carolina, I am inspired by the harmonious flow among the forms of the aquatic life that depends upon it and the precious earth minerals that shimmer beneath it.
As the warm embrace of an August summer is cooled by my blue palette the transition in to the fall season will surely inspire me. The variation of scenery will be agreeable; a transformation along the blue ridge parkway will surely provide for a lovely drive!
