This one is part of a series of paintings I did when experimenting with just a couple of colors on rice paper. What’s different about this one is that I added some blue acrylic paint, just painting it on with my finger, mostly out of curiosity to see what would happen, and I think it looks pretty cool.

This is actually a very small painting, one of a series of experiments with rice paper. This type of painting is quite tricky to get right when working on rice paper because the paper is so absorbent. The ink continues to spread for quite a while after it’s been added, and the whole thing can turn into mud very easily.

This was the first painting that I made, and it came out so amazingly cool! I was never ever able to get such a great mix of colors again, but I made a lot of other cool paintings trying to get there. 🙂

You can see that I signed it on the front. This was before my divorce, which is why the name is different. Later, I regretted the decision to sign the abstract paintings on the front. Most of the other paintings are signed on the back.

Rice paper is extremely tricky, and I didn’t make very many successful paintings with it. I love this one. It’s translucent in the light, and both sides are equally bright.
