Sumi ink on cotton rag paper--- the paper started to fall apart during the erasing stage unfortunately, so I didn't take this piece as far as I would have liked. When paper starts to fall apart it's difficult to work with wet on wet, paper beads up, water dries in patches, brushstrokes get choppy...blah blah.. :) Thu, 13 Oct 2011 22:03:15 -0400 Peaceoffering http://shadowness.com/jonesray/peaceoffering-2 <a href="http://shadowness.com/jonesray/peaceoffering-2"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item4/93175/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />This is a pretty old piece now, from my first year in grad school. I was trying to develop my own mythology with this series. It more or less had to do with love, relationships and veiled meanings.
