Ink+ Strawberries

I’ve painted with ink before but never like this. Part of this project is creative exploration. I’ve looked at texture videos and found an artist who paints with only ink. The colors are vibrant. I use them to mix with other watercolors.

I really like the easy flow of painting with liquid. Sometimes too much water makes a mess. With liqud you get solid color. The other day I painted strawberries.

It’s interesting that some strawberries have a heart shape. Some reveal a heart when you slice them in half. The strawberry I painted here was one featured in a recipe blog. There’s this odd shape but there’s a heart nonetheless. I thought…

Everybody loves strawberries. One can eat them as is. You can make Strawberry Shortcake, lemonade, ice cream…who thought of these ideas? We all have this “sweet likeablikty” but what are we going to do with it? Strawberries are good but there’s delicious possibilities. Wait, not everyone likes strawberries. What does all this have to do with love? Plenty.
