I wanted to call this "Refuse", as in garbage. But I continued to pursue it, adding, subtracting, refining and reclaiming it. Then, I realized the title is 'Refuse", as in refusing to give up! If you contrast this piece with the lighthearted one titled "Within the Lines" that i recently published, you will see polar ends of my alcohol ink experience. Within the Lines is about discovery and restraint, allowing the inks to dictate to ME what they want to BE, whereas this one is about refusing to give up until the painting yields to me something of value. Kind of like how we are supposed to pursue friendships and marriage and relationships, in LOVE. Love refuses to give up on people, no matter what. '
Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.
