Fluidity

Perhaps it's my Aquarian inclinations, but I've always been drawn to water. I've painted ocean themes and creatures of the sea for years, so I suppose it was only a matter of time before I found a way to fully integrate H2O into my work.

After much tooling around in my studio learning a painting style some are calling fluid art, I'm already loving it and feeling confident in it's application. Water is an integral part of my fluid art, and I've been delighted with its creative capabilities. I've even completed a large commission for some client friends; and I must say it's one of my favorite pieces to date!


Untitled Water Painting, 2016
36 x 60 inch 
mixed media (acrylic, medium & metallic spraypaint)


I offer some close-ups of the piece so you can appreciate all the fluid detail. I achieved the metallic silver effect using a special spraypaint technique.



Other various fluid art pieces I have created:

Jolene, 2016
mixed media on canvas
16x20 inch


Under the Wave, 2016
mixed media on canvas
12x12 inch




It's definitely a messy process, but I'm diggin' it!

Fluid art has been a great lesson for me in patience and relinquishing control. These pieces take over a week to fully dry; and for the first few days, they are constantly changing as the water and medium trickles around the canvas. It has a mind of its own! What is it they say in Memoirs of a Geisha ?: "Water...always in such a hurry."

  1. It's the Millennium boxing match or an abomination that spins in a cross code, but what we can say with certainty, in the end, is that it's happening. Once retired all-time great McGregor vs Mayweather Live boxer will take UFC star in Las Vegas.
    There has been what it feels like years of speculation about the McGregor vs Mayweather Fight, with so many name calling on both sides. But the two fighters have announced that it is in fact, in.
    Yes, that's right, a boxer with a 49-0 record against a man who has never taken part in a professional boxing matchup.
    Anyway, here you have everything you need to know about the McGregor vs Mayweather fight.
