Glorioso Delicahtay really means ‘gloriously delicate’ but I didn’t want to name it that. I wanted it to have more … ooomf! It took me several days to complete this one because alcohol inks are difficult to control. I wanted to have very delicate line work. I got out my micro brushes and got to work. I often find very tiny and tedious work very soothing. These lines were that for me, soothing. Many would have gone nuts trying to create something like this. But I don’t find this type of art tedious. It’s challenging and fun. Once I figured out exactly how to get the ink to behave the way I wanted it to I just went in and made line after line. The composition is mostly negative space with a lot of lines that go into that space, but not too far. I wanted lots of details on one side. I had to be careful and not overwork this piece. I had so much fun creating it that I didn’t want it to end. The colors I picked were purposeful. I wanted them to be soothing to the eye. I think this piece also has energy and growth to it. The lines make me feel that something is possible … something growing from one are into another. I guess that’s how I feel my life is right now. I’m growing as an artist and this piece reflects that. I’m growing and learning. This piece makes me really happy in that I was able to accomplish what I set out to do. It doesn’t look exactly like I had it pictured in my mind. Alcohol ink rarely behaves exactly as you picture it. But it did turn out lovely. Art is always teaching me to let go a bit. Isn’t life like that too? We only have so much control and then the rest of it is way out of our control. Actually, we just think we have control. I think that’s an illusion, honestly. I believe we have a Holy Spirit that is very much in control. I love to be the vessel in which I get to have the Holy Spirit work through me and use my art as a catalyst for His grander purposes. I’m not sure what that purpose is. But art is something that often can’t be explained. It comes from a place in an artist’s soul that can’t caged or captured with words or ideas. When I create art, I feel like my soul is singing.
