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!

Nature with a Twist

Fluid painting has entered the scene with a bang. I have been exploring the media for about one year now. With the immediate popularity of the medium it has been an exciting ride of new information. This painting was inspired by cherry blossoms in the spring.  If you have a desire to see them in real life, Washington DC., Seattle Washington, Dallas, and more are cities in the US that boast the real trees. I long to have the opportunity to travel to these places and some day paint the awesome display while I see them in person. But for these my special blossoms. I used a swipe technique for the background and the trees were added later still using the fluid paint formula. I am loving the look as I hope you are as well.

If you would like to see me painting in action please look for my instructional videos on my youtube channel, To be notified of future postings on this  site, please join my email below.
