From Cascade Head


It`s been raining so much my paint isn`t drying. I have three oil paintings in process. Remembering that David Roberts has done interesting work with ink on Yupo, just before leaving the studio last night I gave it a try. One of the reasons I keep trying with this paper is because Sitka accepted me on the basis of my work with Yupo and the project I proposed was to be with Yupo. They don`t care but I was feeling defeated by it and that felt unacceptable. So I did this ink brush drawing today as I waited for the oil paint to set up.

I clicked on the image to see it enlarged. I like the look of the ink on yupo.

Sitka would seem to be such a source of inspiration (though I confess I don't imagine you painting elk).

Will you be keeping a journal while you're there?

(I'll trade our blizzard for your rain. It's been snowing here since 10 this morning.)

I love Yupo and won't go back to watercolor paper.
I coach "Fun with Yupo" workshops, they are a real eye opening!
Take a look at my blog:

This looks very intersting with the negative trees...I like it.
Looks to me like you really are imagining that you cannot tame this "devil"...I think you have it down pat.
