Pouring Acrylics. A New Obsession

Last year I discovered fluid panting. I loved the process and did a lot of experimenting with moving paint.
This year synchronicity sent me to a whole new level. Thanks to a random post on Instagram I was led to the dirty pour. I have been busy exploring new techniques and possibilities and I am in love with this process. It perfectly suits my capricious personality.

Here are a few of my new paintings.

This is a macro of my first painting using this technique.

I am excited to announce I have a solo art show, Go With The Flow, coming up May 13-June 29th, 2017 at Shavasana Gallery and Cafe on Mayne Island BC. It will be featuring my fluid art and resin art pieces, large and small. The opening is on May 13th from 7-9 pm. Come along and see what I have been up to.

City of Gold

City of Gold.
Acrylic on canvas
The sides are painted so this is ready to hang and does not need framing.
Available at SaatchiArt.

I painted this painting while subletting a house with a studio on Salt Spring Island. It is one of the Southern Gulf Islands here in British Columbia. It was a peaceful month of retreat and my time was my own.

It was great to have the space to create larger works. This is one of the first ones I did there. I enjoyed exploring texture with tools for scaping and moving the paint. I also used printing and splashing techniques as the piece took on a life of its own.  It turned out to have so much energy and to reflect and communicate the feel of the city.
