If you were a character in a story, you’d love you for all your quirks & flaws.
This beautiful word art was months in the making, resisting all attempts to pin it down until the inks made their appearance. Of course, words wanted ink to bring them to life, from the rich gold-dusted red in the ‘you’ to the bright apple green popping up here and there throughout.
A lovely reminder to pay more attention to the good in yourself and others, this art would brighten up any creative work space, whether that’s a computer nook, studio, kitchen, or office.
Your Story, 9″x12″ pen & ink, metallic watercolor, and ink wash on Strathmore watercolor paper.
Above, you can see the sparkle of gold in the rich red of the YOU. There’s both gold flecks in the red ink, and a gold metallic watercolor in the decorative details. Below, the piece is in a frame, just waiting to bring its message to the right recipient.
