Blue By You

"Blue By You"
11" x 14"
Alcohol Ink on Yupo 
I was building a blue painting when I picked up a bottle of "citrus" green instead, and placed a droplet into the blue. Yikes! It pushed the drying blue into a hard dark edge, but looked kind of interesting.  Then I intentionally dropped several drips of "cranberry" onto the blue and formed a little blue island surrounded by red.  

Intentional is not a word I associate with alcohol ink. Nor is deliberate. It's more like happenstance, WTF and whodathunkit.  



  1. Happy accidents! Love the title!

  2. I couldn't help myself with the title. The happy accident was exactly that. I've learned to accept, even welcome them with this medium.
