I am in my new home for the next two years. Taking care of all the moving arrangements and exploring the city of Yangon has delayed my blog post but I am already overflowing with inspiration. I will not have my paints for a while so I have been focusing on ink work. I hope to compile a full notebook of ink drawings before I get my paints. These will act as a visual journal with some stand alone pieces but they will also be studies to be used for my paintings. Although I love to work with the simple black and white contrast the tropical environment makes me crave color. I have a pallet of about seven colors in my head that capture Yangon. I am going to seek out some fabric and hopefully pastels to satisfy this crave. For now here is one of my ink drawings.
