On shades | New Mobile - Bl(ink) | Mark Leary Designs

I really wasn’t trying to be difficult. 
“Is it a yes or a no?” she demanded. 
“Is there any other option?” I asked. 
“Because I’m feeling something more in the middle.” 
Frustrated, she stomped away from my truth. 

Mobile: bl(ink) 

Size: Approx. 22" wide x 15" tall 

Color: Belton Molotow Premium paint in Tar Black 

Over the past 10 years, I’ve easily made more than 100 of this design. The original design, Am I Blue, comes in 6 different shades of blue. In recent years, other color combos have spun on the same design (Evergreen in, um, greens, and Phoenix in reds). Yesterday I was asked if I could make it in black. Not shades of black and gray. Not white to black. Just black. It’s interesting to me that I’d never considered just using a single color on this design; a nice lesson to be open to other’s insights on our own “designs.”
