- Living boldly with confidence and humility. It’s a dance of balance. This piece came from a place of allowing the color and movement to express the dance. This alcohol ink painting is one of my first pieces created from the bottom up….cutting the wood, sanding, gluing, nailing, sanding again, varnishing, and sanding again, and varnishing again, and finally painting. This piece is an integral part of who I am. Such a fulfilling experience.
