It has been about 1 year since I have worked with alcohol inks on yupo. Yupo is a synthetic “paper” for use in artwork. Alcohol ink appears to be one brilliant on yupo; the colors become vibrant. I think it has something to do with the way that light reflects off the yupo & thru the inks.

Alcohol ink is difficult to work with because it evaporates very quickly. However, it is worth a try!

On the 10. June, a friend of mine was driving her daughter home from dance class, when a semitruck hit & killed her. Her daughter & son in the car survived. Her husband was home with the baby.. Jasmine was a school teacher, & a loving wife & mother.

Every year the Metro Arts Council of Greenville,SC, has an art contest, & the artists create a work of art in 24 hours…this is what I submitted this year. I’m hoping to win, there are some good prizes!

About 1 year ago, I connected with a group of street musicians( The Trouble Notes) from Europe. As I used to be a street artist, when I heard their music, the adventurous sound resonated with me. Thankfully, they asked me to paint an illustration for their recent recording: “Superbloom”. I used acrylic & pearles

cent colors.

This is a small(10 inch long) oval painting that I made yesterday. I think it will look good with a matte varnish. #AscendingVision, #ArtGenius, #OriginalArt, #Beauty

Doodling in design has been a recent activity- I wanted to try something new; & it all began with drawing on cherry wood veneer. A brighter vision came with the sapphire & turquoise acrylic paints from Nova colors. I had already had success with the sapphire blue pearl on a peacock mural that I created in Easley, SC. The peacock was 14 feet tall.

I found some really pretty cherry veneer- it’s almost thin as paper. I thought, this looks like great fun to paint with. This measures about 11×14.
