My latest painting is titled 'The Year of the Ox'. This ink abstract was created on handmade paper by the Indigo Company.
Titled 'Year of the Snake' a 22"x30" ink abstract painting by Victoria Kloch. I'm so mesmerized by the interaction of the ink on this beautiful rustic handmade paper by The Indigo paper company, This is my current direction in between commission work. When I paint with black inks on this handmade earthy paper using the bamboo reed dip pen I am probably in the closest thing to Zen that I can get to. We all need that, right? The final result creates a natural elegance that I'm so in love with. Framing these on top of the mat to display the gorgeous deckled edges with the natural dents and waves of this handmade paper would be the icing on the cake. Thanks for visiting.

I love the challenge of painting color fields. Though Helen Frankenthaler was the first to paint color fields, Mark Rothko is probably the first artist that comes to mind when someone talks about mid century color field painting. Why do I find block painting a challenge? Taking big blocks of color and making them interesting by using multiple layers is necessary but the reward is watching them develop before my eyes that I find exciting. This is one of my paintings using neutrals for background and blue for my blocks.
With the heart of a minimalist who paints complicated. I live contently in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA. Welcome to my world.
