"Orb II" Original Alcohol Ink Contemporary Abstract Painting, Cosmos by New Orleans Artist Lou Jordan

The Orb paintings are two new alcohol ink paintings that speak to me of Cosmos; space, strings of golden matter, layers and layers into infinity. As I am always trying to see "what will happen if I do this?" these are experiments using the inks on larger pieces of Yupo. I get a substrate of color down on the Yupo and then start dripping and throwing the inks onto the paper - starting at the top and moving the paper all the time til they are dry. Then I have to make sure there is a balance in color and value, a point of interest, (circles are hard to make with the inks). I sit it on the ledge over the fireplace and live with it for a few days, add or subtract, spray with fixative and gloss medium and then either adhere to the wood panels or frame.
