Woods Family Home

I feel so at home with old houses, their vintage charm calls to my pen.  With my TWSBI Go fountain pen and Levenger Raven Black ink, I start the lines that become the place.  Not as sleek and sophisticated as my favorite pen, this Go is a solid worker. I've used it this whole painting trip without reloading ink, the barrel holds so much.  THAT is a real benefit.  What's more, it has been in my hot car continuously, and is unchanged by the abuse.  Each ink drawing tells a story of a time and place, and this medium lends such a timeless quality to it's subject. This time next year, this house will not be standing.  I am honored to capture her beauty while she stands.  Painting number 2083 in 2083 days.
