india ink, pencil, marker, pastel, and crayon with candle wax resist on paper
Big Ink
mixed media on paper
39" x 47"
1980

This is a large work on paper. I utilized an alternating gestural grid resist as a kind-of skewed checkerboard (by using beeswax from old saved candles from my wedding) to temper the overall use of an ink flood, preserving a glimpse of the lower colorful layer drawn with marker, colored pencil, crayon, and pastel.
