“There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally.”

Just read a fascinating study on these fish, the cichlids (si·kluhd). Check it out here:
“To “retire” means to me to begin to die. The man who works and is never bored is never old. Work and interest in worthwhile things are the best remedy for age.”

Dropping ink on wet watercolor paper creates a “tie-dye” effect. I like it. However, I found myself trying to manipulate the result into solid rounds for my flowers. Trying new things reveals my tendencies to myself and gives me an opportunity for reflection. I’m going to do it again and not take a brush to it at all…and see what happens. I find that I prefer using lighter ink colors so that the pen can show through more clearly.
