This painting started with India ink on paper with lines drawn with a pen, string, and more including a stick from the yard. Adding acrylic made the ink turn a dark blue. Then I just played with the figurative shapes that came out of the mingling of the colors. and added more acrylic paint in muted colors. More lines were added with Caran d'ache, which are lovely water soluble crayons, (so much fun to play with), they can have that mind of their own! When the painting was finished, or so deemed finished by moi, I attached it to a Ampersand panel and sealed it, ready to be framed in a black floater frame by the sponsors at ACT.
