"In Honor of Theo Schmuz-Baudiss"

Ink. 18 X 6 inches.
I discovered an Art Nouveau potter/glazer who created painterly pictoral glazes on his ceramics. This ink painting is reminiscent of one that he did around the full upper area of a vase, and was my first attempt at the use of ink in painting. I especially like the way white spaces define the trunks and branches throughout one, dark, sinuous whole.
