I have been using inks more and more alongside watercolors.  They are thinner than watercolor, at least the pigments I enjoy the most, and they stain permanently into the paper.  One tincture of carbon black is probably meant to endure months and months, but I enjoy pouring it straight out of the bottle like a sauce, undiluted and penetrating...

...but the paper cannot absorb everything I throw at it.  Most of it is sacrificed.

Saturday February 16th will be the opening of a solo exhibition of my newest work created during the past year.  Hooks Epstein Gallery is one of Houston's longest running art galleries, and I am so grateful to be a part of it.  There is a direct flight to Houston from just about everywhere, so please join us.
