Tears of Ink

Pain...it dries...blows away in the wind....but the stains are left behind forever


My favorite digital work so far. It is beautiful to me...as is its inspiration. This was featured in my exhibition at the Tweed Museum of Art in Duluth. It even garnered the praise of one of my former drawing/print professors who usually hates my digital work :D

A recycle use of some simlar elements from other pieces.(sxc.hu photos as well)

As with everything let me know what you think

In some ways, I have a hard time believing this is digital. It's beautifully done. I love the thick brush strokes, the color palette works well, as does the composition. The UMD professors don't know what they're talking about. You should be proud of it, good work :)

Thank you, its really one of my pieces i really feel holds up conceptually and quality-wise. Every time i look at it(20x30 print :D) it evokes a different emotion and memory of life.

The thick brush strokes are awesome.

I think it would look better if you made the wallpaper-looking part at the top a bit darker, to make the light coloured area going across the middle of the picture stand out more, because I think that part is what makes it appeal to me.

As usual, great work.

Thank you. I agree, the only thing is I originally made this piece for print so when it prints the faded wallpaper section becomes much darker with printing.

My former professor also liked the wallpaper part on the print version saying it was just hint enough to evoke an asian sensibility. Though he overall ripped my exhibition :D

The original inspiration for this piece was single ink blot on her eye that looked like a tear the whole piece came from that. :)
