Video Tutorials on Youtube

The fluid painting process is so much fun. I get really excited just seeing how the paints will perform. It is a gift to be able to share my experience with those who have interest in the medium. This process to me opens many possibilities. It is my goal to use the premixed paints and create more than just chance results. So far we are seeing many who have taken acrylic pouring as a new trend to play with paint. I have seen many beautiful paintings.  But I am confident that there are many more creations that can be made using this awesome paint formula.

In this painting I have combined several techniques, but I feel it is only the tip of the iceberg. I have done swipe paintings that keep the exciting “cells” created in a pour. Giving a unique abstract feel to the final art work.

If you love this new process as I do please take the time to follow this link to my youtube channel  “Straw Blown Field of Flowers”  and see the processes I  used to get these results.

Copyright Infringement

Hello friends and fans. I am sad to report that I was recently in a situation that was as close to infringement as I ever want to get. I’m a member of an amazing group on Facebook where we learn and share ideas about Acrylic pouring. I decided to try to do a series of 4 season clocks similar to one of my first acrylic pour paintings of Fall leaves looking up from the forest floor.

I posted the summer trees circle in the group and was excited with the responses. Only to wake in the am to find a message telling me that another artist had posted my painting alongside hers stating that “she must be a good artist cos someone tried to copy her work”.

Well not only did I not copy her art, but if there were a forgery it would be hers. I had actually never heard of her before this accusation The fact that she posted my work, disrespectfully I might add, gives me much room for legal revenge.

I will say that I do not have intention to pursue any revenge at this time. But would appreciate an apology.

For all artists who follow my blog I hope you see this as a warning keep your eyes pealed some artists may not be as respectful of others as you are. Copyright infringement can come in different ways. Not just a copying but posting your work without permission and proceeding to falsely accuse is a big No No in the art world.

Hope you enjoy my summer forest looking up painting. And if you would like to attempt to create one similar I would love to share some tips.

Please share if you have ever encountered a similar issue. Have an Awesome Day!
