So I was messing around with inks yesterday while doing a zoom call with some artist friends. Started with the painting on the left. Something wasn’t right about it and my friends helped me see that the warm gold color is overwhelming the other cool colors on the page. But my paper was already buckling. Could have thrown it away and start again but I had hope. Wasn’t going to give up. Turned to mixed media and ended up with the painting on the right. I like it now. That is why I am calling this HOPE. Don’t give up. There is always another way… just like this pandemic. We will find a way.
