Still sketching. Trying to add more color. No idea will this is leading, if anywhere. I’ve realized that I don’t need to know, as long as I just keep making whatever it is I want to see. This way of thinking has helped me to relax and experiment more. I’ve found that I like using […]

I used liquid latex (used for applications similar to wax resist in ceramics) that I’d dyed blue. I’ve had this stuff […]
