Etching ink, oil, alkyd on cradled wood panel
40" x 30"

Continuing my fondness of flowers by experimenting with etching ink. Etching ink is less pigmented than oil paint, but is ground into Burnt Plate Oil, which is linseed oil brought up to about 500 F for x time in the presence of oxygen.

The result is a ropy compound that when used in painting, produces the possibility of runs in the paint that say something about all things passing.

I say it again: All Things Passing.
