52 Postcards | Week 17

This is one of my favorite sayings these day: it's complicated. In fact, I can't think of much in life it doesn't apply to. I mixed a nice gray to really send home the point. The older I get, the more life situates me in a rainbow of grays. Black and white are for the youngsters.

I printed on Bristol which didn't take the ik as cleanly as I would have liked. I hope after 52 weeks of this I will learn some lessons. Right now I keep making the same mistakes. Although conceptually, complicated is messy and so this print is only better with its imperfections.
