Item 52921 – River in stone

This painting was created using the flip cup method. The colors were individually mixed with pouring medium, and then all those colors were added to one cup. You can layer the colors carefully or you can dump them in casually — each will give different results. The cup of paint was then poured on the substrate which is now tilted for composition and to remove excess paint. If silicone was added, this is when cells begin to appear which is a really fun process to watch as the cells evolve over minutes or even hours.

I really wasn’t sure how I would feel about this piece once it had been poured. All acrylic paint used in pouring dries darker than it appears when it is wet. That can make a difference in how a piece presents and how I feel about it. What won me over with this was the sense of earth about it — to me it has a very textured, mineral sense to it, almost like a random slice of the planet. I also feel the colors are more rich appearing than dark.

If you desire, I can cover the back of the canvas with craft paper, and a sawtooth hanger can also be added at no charge.
