harmony to chaos

This is a piece started today. Both elements are good but it needs more; a binding element and element to pop on the page. Not sure what I will add, but something.

The background wash is sumi ink on damp paper. The vertical textural element is pencil and the built up letters are sumi ink.


  1. Beautiful work and lettering! Interested to see what you'll add...

  2. Thanks Jane. I'll be interested to see what come of it too. This is actually a verse from the Bible, The Message version. I was thinking of adding another block of text in the lower left corner same verses but different translation. Or maybe have the next block of text start to break up with the letters breaking out of the block arrangement into chaos themselves. I'm not sure, but I am excited about continuing the piece.
    Thanks for the comment.
