The 'INKspirations'

2016  -  2017

In 2016 I became intrigued with Klecksography, the 19th century art of making images from inkblots. I experimented with the technique by dropping acrylic ink onto watercolour art-board. Although my inkblots were not mirror-images like the original Klecksographs, I watched with delight as faces and figures began to appear as the ink dried. Using pen and ink, I developed the images that emerged and eventually dubbed these whimsical creations, the 'INKspirations'

Communicate With Love

Today I read some letters of hate So I sat in my chair to contemplate Wondering out loud to no one there Why oh why is there such despair? So I picked up my paint, my pen and ink And drew a guy who made me blink There on his neck was a sign from above You are the divine so speak with love.
