This piece is an acrylic pour swipe. I had envisioned one thing and it came out entirely differently. I discovered that I loved it once it dried. It looks like something that is alive. Sentient. The colors I chose were autumn colors. Lots of warm yellows, reds, and oranges and some green and aqua too. The one thing about acrylic pouring that always gets me is that you only have a tiny amount of control and the paint is going to tell you what it’s going to do. There is a limited window of time to manipulate the paint before you just have to be done. In my case it was a maximum of 20 minutes. Once that time has passed then you have to be finished. Otherwise the paint will do odd things and stop reacting properly. There is a freedom in this, as well as a cage. What’s done is done. From there you either scrape the canvas or wait until it dries and decide. I’m always surprised how quickly a painting must be done. It’s not a medium you can work on for days or weeks. It’s a form or art that gets finished quickly. Hurry up! The clock says ‘GO!’.
