The other day, I was looking through my files to set aside for an upcoming Craft Fair. My sister had suggested that I might want to pull out some of my doodles and make some black and white prints. I was inverting some of them, just as an experiment, when I came across one done in blue ink, rather than black.
Without a thought, I inverted it and what came up was that first image. I love Happy Accidents. My mind started jumping, so I immediately took the black and gold image to the kaleidoscope app, and started playing with it.
I felt that I had struck gold, literally and figuratively. I stayed with it for quite some time.
Thought they were amazing and before I knew it, I had over twenty different images. Each one different, but all of them unique and more than pleasing.
The last one had a blank black center, and I wasn’t sure I wanted keep it. Then remembered some of the things I used to do with other images. Did a bit more playing and digital sketching. Did I mention, I love Happy Accidents?
Decided to title the whole series as Black Gold. I think I might be busy for awhile.
