This painting feels like a dream, with a touch of magic. I created it with alcohol inks and acrylic paint.
In art therapy, the self is represented through our representation of trees. Every branch, every twig, every shade of bark, is an expression of myself, in that moment. And by working with the unpredictable nature of alcohol inks, I create controlled structure while simultaneously "going with the flow" and working around and with the unpredictable shapes and blends of the inks. They are contained only by my brush stroke and a barrier of acrylic paint to keep the inks from bleeding. I love the technical challenge required to make it all work together to create something graceful and beautiful.
I find my so much joy in creating trees and I hope you find joy in yourself when you look at my work.
