inky collaboration

“The secret is to keep adding voices, adding ideas, and moving things around as you put together your life. If you’re lucky, putting together your life is a process that will last through every single day you’re alive.”
Ann Patchett

My older daughter (12) was home from school with a cold last week (better now) so we collaborated on some inky wonderfulness. Sick days shoud be restful, but they don't need to be boring! We used 4 different colors of j. herbin inks. Here's a link to the j. herbin perle noir at jet pens, it's deep-deep purple.  

How lush are these inks? We moved the inks around with chopsticks, calligraphy pens and water. Here are more of our experiments creating abstracts wth india inks.
