About this artwork
I'm always captivated by the fall colors and shapes. I began this piece by squirting acrylic ink on paper, pressing in leaves, squirting and spritzing and then covering and weighting it for a few hours. When it was dry enough to hold the shapes, I unwrapped everything. It's always fun to see what happens to the colors and shapes. The next step is the most difficult-what is the piece going to be, what does it say. I decided on chickadees and leaves while keeping a lot of the original texture.
