Aligned – series

Recently, I’ve been working on a series of nine single word pieces,
each one on 12″ x 12″ canvas.
The eventual goal is to put all nine words together into a single piece.

I’ve never really done calligraphy on canvas before
and it’s posing particular problems.
For some reason, I’m still trying to figure out how to get the canvas
to take sumi ink and watercolor like paper does.

Old habits die hard at times – I’m only slowly adjusting my point of reference.

“Aligned” one of 9 words from the “Words Create Worlds” series; sumi ink, watercolor and acrylic on canvas. 12 x 12″.
