THE FINISHED PRODUCT
Pictured above is a sample of what you will receive as a backer. The 5" x 7" paintings are matted on a white, beveled matboard measuring 8" x 10", and protected by a plastic sleeve. The white matboard is numbered (1/1), titled, and signed by me. I will send a survey to backers to pick a predominant color of their choice.
Alcohol inks have a mind of their own! These highly concentrated dyes blend, swirl, bleed, and bloom on the surface of polypropylene paper. I use isopropyl alcohol and a blending solution to move the ink around the paper in different ways to create interesting, unpredictable colorscapes. To add depth and shine, I often incorporate metallic watercolors.
Colorful agates, geodes, and light filtering through foliage | Nebulas, universes, and stormy skies | Auras, chakras, and zodiac signs | Even Rorschach's famous inkblot tests.
Painting these abstract studies is a very meditative process. The layers and complexities that exist in a seemingly simple colorfield are what makes these works so special. They are a unique addition to any gallery wall, as a pair, trio, or even as a singular statement piece in a small space.

Risks and challenges
I have completed 50+ paintings, and have supplies for 300+ more. I have scheduled time to paint, pack and ship before April 2017 for the first round of reward tiers with estimated April delivery.
I have launched a second round of reward tiers with an estimated delivery date of June 2017 to give myself ample time to paint, pack and ship another run! June 2017 would be the LATEST these will ship -- I aim for them to ship sooner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
