"Cross Stitch" is one of the most recent drawings in ink, made with a calligraphy pen and with the ink bottle dispenser, in the series of ink drawings I have been doing for the last 12 months. The original inspiration for the series was a small bottle of ink I'd had in my studio for many years. I experimented with the ink dispenser, using it to "draw" with, and I liked the effect. Later I started using a calligraphy pen and used both on "Cross Stitch." The paper collage elements add texture and depth to the piece. The all-over pattern incorporates my process of repetitive drawing with on paper, one of my favorite surfaces.
