This is a favorite ink drawing that came about as I was studying the way that rock lichens interact and proliferate. From botanical beginnings it soon became a semi-abstracting work in it's own right. I feel like this will be the seed drawing of a whole new series and way of drawing. Nature is always the starting point, but then the works take on a life and expression of their own. The dictionary defines 'Emanation' as an abstract but perceptible thing that issues or originates from a source. The source in this instance is lichens.
