Boyd’s Beach, 1

Randy Boyd is letting me use some of his Laguna Beach
*home home home* images for Inktober.

It started out okay, then I tried adding colored inks to it.
For some reason they got darker and more *aaack* until I was fed up.
I took a spray bottle to it and sang “MacArthur Park is melting in the rain…”
(I apologize for putting that into your head…)
BTW if you decide to do that clip the paper down and put towels underneath.
*geesh what a mess but I saved Sammy’s image thankfully*
Here, in all honesty, is my inky weird experiment gone wrong!

    I spend a couple days in Laguna Beach in 1979 as we made our way down the west coast from Seattle to San Diego. I don’t remember much, but it makes me feel good to think I may have seen something like this.


  2. I really like the ink drawing, and the little strip of the Palm and sea. I love the quote!


I love hearing from visitors!
