I’ve disappeared into an exhilarating cosmic exploration of this enchanting love affair with everything that is Art.
Had to refresh my space – emptied the space, cleaned, de-cluttered, & organized, & I’m happy with the setup. Brought in two 3-high rolling storage drawers, that can move with me as I move around my studio, & one of those ‘hang on the back of your door organizers’ with 6 rows of storage pockets.
A practical, easily accessible hideaway for my brushes, torch, stencils, cups, paper towels, gloves, palette knives, & everything else I’ve confiscated from the rest of the house; hidden from view if the door is open. Finally got rid of some grungy old canvases that has been used one time too many too, & picked up a huge blue tarp that covers more than half of my space, so I can really let loose & not worry about the mess.
Every 6 months or so I like reorganizing the furniture in my room, studio [main living space, maybe once a year. Sometimes I get a little messy, a bit lazy .. I guess it’s more of a disconnect / unable to deal / zone out that’s usually if I had long day, rough week, too much stress at work [the restaurant industry is one in which we take a ton of abuse,
I can just feel the stagnation – when my space is stagnant or cluttered, I am stagnant & cluttered.
Again I must thank all the artists who mesmerize me with their techniques, experiments, tutorials, & of course their final works, each a masterpiece in their own right. I’ve been trying every technique I’m drawn to & have failed more than I’ve succeeded – but just like life art is all about the journey not the destination✨💃✨
The String Pull:
The Pour, Dirty & Flip Cup:
And my first ‘pretty sloppy poor color choice’ Tree Ring Pour:
It needs work but I adore some of the effects I’ve seen other artists get with this technique so Tree Ring Pour practice is on the agenda for today!

Funny how the inappropriate vids of a sexual nature, involving children, are never flagged on YouTube. But those offering a different take on mainstream things are?? Why is that⁉️
Did you know youtube was started by convicted pedophile Marc Collins-Rector? Yes, the same Marc Collins-Rector named in the Bryan Singer lawsuit. Research!
As if that wasn’t bad enough, they’re now flagging any vids about “a supposed conspiracy theory about 9/11.”
HOLD UP, REWIND:
In 2017, 9/11 was officially declared a CONTROLLED DEMOLITION by the grand jury – A FACT THEY WANT TO KEEP KEEPING FROM THE PUBLIC.
THEY ARE LITERALLY ERASING THE TRUTH, & PEOPLE SHOULD BE VERY, VERY WORRIED ABOUT THAT.
Twitter is no better, as I am shadowbanned every other day, as I try to get this info out to people, evident in my stats.
They have a right to know.
I haven’t blogged in ages – but that’s because I have been painting in my studio – every single day.
Can’t Get Enough! Freshened up the energy in my studio by de-cluttering & organizing, & it’s invigorating 🙃
And I wouldn’t be here talkin about this right now – if it wasn’t for all of the amazing artists sharing their tutorials & tips online! Thanks you guys!!
What do you think of my acrylic pour + black & white swipe ⁉️
Have you tried these techniques yet? Did you like your results .. let me know in the comments!
Visit my shop on Fine Art America for this & other original abstract artwork – printed on just about anything under the sun!
Proud of my latest, this is more the style I like. Getting there 😉
Have you picked up a paintbrush yet?
Oh my goodness! Fireworks are going off inside me as I watch this demonstration – as I realize this is how I can make my favorite thing in the world – a beach scene! With a mix of acrylic pour & swipe techniques just like this, with a golden yellow on the bottom, blue on top. I’d get hints of green in the water too – just hafta make sure it’s the right shade, more turquoise-y. Ooooh✨👩🎨✨
I would stop mine halfway through – at the 6:30 mark.
I love art, & am marveled, delighted, & still a little surprised loll For 45 years, not a single activity – or even a thought about anything ‘artsy.’
Now I can’t imagine my life without it, it has brought me such joy, such beauty, such love. Ha I’m tearing up a bit as I write this. LOL!
It is profound.
