A couple of weeks ago, I did a couple of pouring paintings. This is the other set of six paintings that I made. The paintings are in no particular order. The first one was made by adding a flat color of purple paint. I flattened the paint with a straw. I then added some colors in the middle. I then used a stick to make the little star shape. The final round dots were added one droplet at a time. I used a syringe to add the color droplets. The colors had a bit of water in the mix. I...

Over the last couple of days, I was looking up tutorials for pouring paintings. With the videos, it did go a little better than my first try at that medium.

There are still plenty of walls left to fill in my room. The featured painting is Alice inside her Head. I wanted to give it a dream like feeling. Alice is part of a mini series of paintings, all with the...

art, painting, review -

Today, I decided to do something a little bit different. This is not to say that I am running out of fine art to show you. I can paint and draw many things. For the time being, I have been focusing on my children’s book project. I don’t want to show any finished pictures from the book till it gets published. I have a real good feeling about. Anyhow, a couple of years ago, through the magic of Facebook mother got in contact again with a childhood friend. They were real tight when younger. She gave him his first terrible...
