The brain works in mysterious ways... my brain is energetic, chaotic, and has a way of seeing color that is different from others. It is always on the go, filled with ideas, colors, processes. One idea flows into the next, thoughts cut through, images pop up. It’s chaotic and sometimes overwhelming. But it’s also amazing, because it’s where my creativity resides. It’s where my art is born. In turmoil.
This piece was painted using alcohol inks and high flow acrylics on gallery wrapped canvas.
Alcohol inks are highly pigmented, alcohol based inks. They can be used like other media like oils, acrylics and watercolors. By layering the inks, and by using different techniques, the artist can create a feeling of depth and flow. The thing that is different about these inks is how unpredictable they are, and to what extend one can control them. Guiding the inks takes a certain level of skill, but also the ability to accept their unruliness. I think that’s why I love them so much!
The sides are painted.
It is finished with several layers of UV protection and varnish to help prevent fading.
I understand buying art online can be somewhat daunting, since you cannot see it up close and personal. To help make things easier I post as many pictures as I can, and try to make a video of each painting. I also offer appointments for people who are able to come by here in my home. If that is not a possibility I do collectors the opportunity to send an artwork back, if it turns out it doesn't quite fit in their home.
