Beyond the Abstract: Pouring, Swiping, Flipping, Dipping

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 Swipe:

The String Pull:

The Pour, Dirty & Flip Cup:

More pouring:

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!

Watch “🧙Acrylic Pour Painting Pt 1: Swipe Technique Demonstration”

Swipe Demo by Courtney Hoelscher

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.

Acrylic Pouring Fun

I take pictures of absolutely every painting I do for a variety of reasons, & thankfully I wind up with a scrapbook charting my progress; it’s a lot of fun to see your growth🌱

I can’t get over how much fun acrylic pouring is – don’t you just love it when you have endless possibilities⁉️

Have you tried it yet?

Angels Among Us – the white figure on the right seemingly under a handleless umbrella, or a very large banana, being pointed in the right direction by Inukshuk arrows .. could they be pointing behind the veil ..

Flip it over & it becomes a Loch Ness Monster, he’s got his eye on a guy now in a banana boat, seemingly being pointed towards the exit by the Inukshuk arrows ..

Looks like that redheaded guy is pretty scared of the number 3!

And more hearts this week:

There are two white ones in the upper left in this one.

A dark blue one in the middle in this one.

And a bit of a squished heart on the back of this upside down cup!

Love love love 🌺🌺🌺
