I never cease to be taken aback by the power of black on white. This week I had some leftover black paint in a palette and decided to make quick sketches with it. I think I still had the concept of “story” in my head because each of these begs for a story to surround it. Part of the enjoyment of art is making that connection point for a viewer and imagining what they may come up with as they take in what you’ve put to paper.

As in so many things, quick and expressive sketches like this rely on the amazing human brain and imagination to fill in gaps and color, etc. Though I leave lots of white, it is not as if what I’ve left has nothing to say. Amazing.
