Cloud Drawing #2
Graphite and china marker on paper
Image size 9.5 x 7.5 inches
Inventory # 08-J-02

Here is another new cloud drawing. These are fun to do. I’ve been inspired by decorative Japanese painting and the simple repetitive patterns I find in those works. I like the playful mood in this piece and the ambiguity of the space.
