I have been painting and drawing a lot recently but haven't posted in a while. I've been doing a lot of ink drawings and I've been experimenting with drawing people in Sumi ink washes. It's totally new to me to use this material to draw anything other than botanical images and I don't know yet if this is a diversion or a new direction for me. I'm not ready to post them yet. For now this is a painting I just finished to enter into the East Shore Festival of the Arts.
