The Work Of My Hand

I've been experimenting with a variety of pens, inks, watercolors & acrylics. The "work of my hand" was painted/drawn/inked on a page of my regular (daily writing versus art) Moleskine lined journal. The paper is very thin &, once I had started this drawing I wished I had done it on my Clairefontaine Watercolor pads. Thankfully, a layer of gesso on the paper really helped to beef up the weight & made this sort of detailed work possible on such thin paper possible. I loved working on this hand ! I may doing a regular painting of both hands in a similar style - I have some nice square canvas' all ready to go !

How lovely! I'll be interested in seeing both hands if you end up doing them. You are so talented and have such varied interests. It's always fun to visit your site for inspiration! I love the new blog "look" too...gorgeous colors!

Marie, someone mentioned to me "zentangles" Tuesday night and I thought it sounded vaguely familiar and when I looked it up online I recalled there was a blog or two that I had read about zentangles...was it you? the reason I ask is you hand reminds me of a zentangle...there is a flickr group and a website, but you may already know that.
