“Experiments” Series

As you know I’ve been working with pouring mediums lately. I’ve decided to group most of these paintings that share the same form factor (4″x4″ on canvas) into a series called “Experiments”. Because they are experimental in nature, these pieces primarily focus on exploring pouring medium with other media. Below is the latest one (again, please excuse the glare, they are difficult to photograph):

In this painting I incorporated glass beads. I love the look of the beads in this piece since the beads obviously lend themselves to bubbles in water.:

Some of the beads are iridescent to compliment the shifting hues when light reflects off the water when it moves:

Another fun thing was to put a flat glass piece over my initial, providing a see-through feature like a window:

Below is a shot showing the sides of the deep-edge canvas with drippage:

I have to say I really enjoy making these pieces because they are explorative and fun. I hope you enjoy them too.

Guilty pleasures

Hello dear readers, I hope everyone had a good Father’s Day weekend. I had a good and busy one, which meant not enough time to make art. So I tried to get a bite-size art snack in by doodling and sorting washi tape.

Guilty pleasures, everyone has them. Mine is art supplies, craft supplies and stationary. So I sorted washi tapes and fooled around with them in my sketch book:

The page was previously painted by testing out different acrylic paints. I find that they make good backgrounds. After that I applied bits of washi tape and white paint pen to make line drawings on top.

Sometimes you just have to fool around and do something just for fun!
