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 painted this watercolor portrait of my brother-in-law Ray. It's been years since I've painted an actual person but when my nephew asked if I would paint a watercolor for him using an old photo of his father how could I refuse. As I painted this, many memories unexpectedly poured into my thoughts. Each part of his face especially the eyes was so important to capture his warmth and kindness he showed to others. Ray never meant a stranger and he always made anyone he meant feel important. Ray's love for the outdoors needed to come across too, so for this portrait I used cold press paper to bring to this watercolor the outdoorsy ruggedness of Ray while hopping to show his gentle kindness on the inside. Such a beautiful face of a beautiful man. You will forever live in our hearts.
