42 Year Old Ink

11×14 mixed media on bristol board. The title is a statement of fact, I used 42 year old ink. Not sure if that is special or not, but I can tell you it works a lot differently that newer inks I have. Has a nice grainy texture that leaves nice spaces for other colors to layer over it. I must of been a genius to think of that 42 years ago…or a little bit of a hoarding issue when it comes to art supplies. I was watching the London  Olympics while doing this, but for the life of me couldn’t come up with a Olympic theme title that felt right…Floor Exercise in Yellow?  Opportunity for me, a Olympic inspired piece before they end.

    • I greatly appreciate that, i do give a fair amount of thought into the naming of a piece as i feel it deserves some of that same creative energy that the work gets too…thanks for like and the feedback.

  1. The more I look, the more I see–great piece! The colors are fantastic!
    Thanks for the like and the opportunity to check our your blog. I’m reallying enjoying the experience! Have a great weekend!!

  2. The angular lines and squares remind me of a spinal cord x-ray, or just the skeleton in general, which makes me think of athletics which makes me think of the Olympics…I think you captured the theme! Beautiful art work. Thanks for liking my post I happily return the favour 🙂

    Could forty-two year old ink be the same as an eleven-year-old mind in a fifty-two year old body? I know about the mind & body part, that’s me! The only difference is that I all most all of my own rules.
