I've been going through all my old stuff, things I havent thought of for decades. They were just in these old, rotting cardboard portfolios. I found this ink painting in a rice paper sketchbook. I think it was done when I lived in London in 1977. Being in a sketchbook in the dark has preserved this and the others in the book quite nicely. The inks havent faded at all and the paper hasnt yellowed very much. 

   Finding all these old ink pieces makes me want to do some painting with inks. Could my old inks still be usable? I'll have to look...



Here's a photo of me in 1977 on a walk in Oxfordshire with some friends.
