The first Environmental Accumulation was created between the full moons in April (Pink) and May (Flower) of 2017 by, each day, pouring between one and thirty teaspoons of india ink onto the center of the panel, slowly building layer after layer over a ground of black gesso tinted with pure indigo crystals. From time to time, additional layered mediums were added at critical junctures in the moon cycle. As the work dried after its completion, fissures opened and cracks appeared that further demonstrate the time of the accumulation.
