I made the irregular lines of salt pools with the intention of doing something with vertical lines of pen and ink, and then once I looked at the piece it just really wanted paint instead. I used pure Ultramarine Turquoise to create the streaky lines, and the whole thing reminds me of watching a really strong rain storm through a window, a few drops close enough to watch and the rest making the world a blur.
Raindrops Falling, 5″x7″ mixed media on paper, $222, framed, with free shipping.
I have been ridiculously busy this week and don’t have proper detail or framed photos, but by now I expect you know what sort of plain black frames I use. Here’s a close-up of the lower right corner, so you can see the salt crystals that have grown off the edge of the paper, and the way the paint caught on the bigger salt crystals.
