Ink Blots

There are few things easier to create on purpose or by accident than an ink blot.

There is so much and so little to read into one. We can check with Rorschach for that.

I am taking a year long class with Carla Sonheim. One of our assignments was to enjoy making and adding to ink blots.

As the clouds build outside, I have hunkered down in the studio to enjoy some music and continue this ink work.

Behind the scenes I have been working on a new series. Having become the keeper of the family photos, I have boxes of inspiration from photos dating from 1920-1945. There will be more on that in future posts.

Read what you like into these blots, Hermann Rorschach would, hopefully, have a heyday with them. Funny thing, I actually knew one of his descendants.
