Final linework is done. This one was trouble from the start. I had a definite visual in my head but could not replicate it through my hands. I tried ink washes, markers, various toned papers with blacks and gray prismacolors. I could not make anything work. This was my last ditch effort... and I started over 3 times on it. Good old clayboard... the indestructable surface. Takes repeated sandings. I am happy. I may try to add color... If it turns out with color, then I will repost and that will be the submission to drawergeeks... if it tanks, then black and white it is.

Got a pad of acid free Craft paper... what fun. Playing with umber ink and brush. Brush? No undo? And I have to clean it after I am done??? What method of madness is this? Well, on the bright side, it does turn my tongue a really funky shade of brown black. Hmmmm, "Do not ingest. Do not induce vomiting." Kids, read the warning labels. That's what they are there for. *Safety tip of the week.

Opening night was this evening. Had a nice turn out. Met the Artists, what a talented group. Lacey is just an incredible painter. But hoo-wee it was hot in there. But I'm circumferentially challenged, and I was in a suit. I had a really good time. But I need a long sleep.
