Do you know what I think would be cool, Randall? Do your new watercolor technique as the background for a piece.  Then, draw something in pencil on top of that... a mandala, a figure, a flower, something abstract.  Then ink what you drew with fine or thicker black marker.  then colorize, somehow, a little or a lot, what you drew... but not too much... let the watercolor still show through.  Then add some little ornaments, highlights or something with gold and or silver leaf pen, a while goache pen, or both. 

I think that could be fabulous.  Mixed media.  I think you new watercolor pieces are really cool.  Some of them could be the springboard for new mixed media pieces.  You could also use the new water color pieces as backgrounds for collages or do a really mixed media piece and do what I describe above (or something else you think up, or a variation of what I describe) and combine that with some appliled collage stuff. 

What do you think?  That occurred to me when I was looking at your new pieces.  It could be that you are sort of making your own, very fancy paper, which could be stationary, backgrounds for other mixed media pieces, or could stand on its own.  If you do not want to mess up your original watercolor, you could add mixed media to a color xerox of the water color piece. 

K, these are my thoughts for you.  Great new pieces.  Just some ideas that occurred to me when I saw them.  Sent you some favs and comments, dear Randall.
