The following shots are macro's of an acrylic pour & swipe I did a year ago. I liked the painting so much I kept it. It's title, 'Purple Rain'. I'm a huge fan of Prince, by the way.
Over the last year, I have found things here and there, within the details of the piece. I think it's fun to reexamine this work from time-to-time to see what pops out at me.
The following are things I easily see. You tell me if you agree or even find things I'm missing! -Shot 1 -- Me obviously
-Shot 2 -- Giant skull. Upper left...
-Shot 3 -- Purple Rain
-Shot 4 -- Old man in a cave Or, if you look closer, a Pug sitting up to beg for a treat
-Shot 5 -- Distorted skull (In case you are wondering, YES... I have a thing for skulls.)
-Shot 6 -- Dog swimming -- blood shot eye, ears back. Bottom... -Shot 7 -- A bunch of stuff -Shot 8 -- Man in coat walking against the wind. Left...
-Shot 9 -- Yin Yang. Top and bottom... This coming spring and summer I'm going to be selling a lot of work like this on the Oregon coast, in Waldport. I'm spending these winter months, working up an inventory.
I hope to have quite a large selection of artwork for people to enjoy in 2020. Everything from wood carvings to paintings, sculptures, prints, and much more. Big surprises coming soon!
I'm having a lot of fun along the way!

How can my art support me financially
For so long the only answer I ever got to this question was, “don’t expect it to”. From elders in the creative community, to other authors, artists, and plenty of muggles - every one wants to warn you that it’s really hard, that you’re putting too much pressure on your art, and that tbh it’s just a bit naive. It drives me wild.
So Can my art support me financially
Yes. It can. Plenty do it. Is it easy Not for most. Does it always look exactly like what you envision No. Do you have to think outside the box Push yourself Try strange new ideas Fail Try again Yes.
Is it kind of wonderful Yes!! Share your work. Put your art up for sale. We honest to god need it, and if you create something vulnerably, and get clever about how you want to show it to us - we will pay through the nose.
