This little painting was of a dried seed head. It was painted on good old fashioned sugar paper in a combination of ink and poster paint. I really like the way I have captured the shape and lines. My most successful work is all about the line. I was about 17 when I painted it. Nearly 40 years later I wish that I painted like that now! Perhaps I should break out the ink and gouache again?
