What the Boss Likes – a little self-promotion

I’ve started an etsy store for my alcohol ink paintings, EvanescentInks.  It’s entirely a vanity project. 🙂

Please enjoy the images!  If you would like to buy one, neat!  But don’t feel like you should.

The image is my take on the hobo sign for kind woman, and in my instance, one with claws.  I came up with it a handful of months ago.

What the Boss Likes – my adventures in alcohol ink art

I’ll be the first one to tell you I don’t have much in the way of artistic skills.  I’ve tried piano when I was little, and never got it.  My grandmother and great aunt tried their best to teach me how to crochet and tat and I was an abysmal failure at those.  I can trace and copy well, but that’s about it.   Alcohol inks make me feel like I actually can be an artist.  They are a cantankerous medium, often wanting to do what they want rather than what the artist wants.  But that’s half the fun.

Alcohol Art Ink Community on Facebook has a lot of wonderful help and they have a very nice website. There are also a lot of videos on youtube.  These are all on ceramic tiles I got at the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore.  You can also get tiles at a home improvement place.  I’ve just started working at one, happily no longer working with government.

Some of my attempts:

I plan to put these together in a frame for my new kitchen.

Again, fair warning to anyone who came upon my website.  I do have a lot of fun posts like this but I also have my opinion posts which give my religious (atheist) and political (pragmatic progressive) opinions in a very unvarnished way.  If you want to avoid those, just ignore the posts titled “Not So Polite Dinner Conversation”.
