Sunflowers and Butterflies
by Claire Schaffrath
Artist’s Comment: This was a challenge for me as I never have much success with the color yellow so I looked for inspiration for color palettes online and found the photo which I also posted with it so I’ve called this piece sunflowers and butterflies…
I had to give some thought into how to layer the colors as not to get mud which often happens with yellow and black..anyway using the fluid bloom technique I layered as follows deep yellow, raw sienna, beige/sand follows by a black cell activator.
It helped to place that beige/sand before the black for sure and the base was a white silk satin house paint. I’ve made three of the same in varying sizes and have now resin-coated them and will hand them together to make wall art.

What Artist has to say about this piece: I choose wood panels to paint on, mainly for structural purposes. I layer resin and paint in my pieces where sometimes, there are up to 20-30 layers of resin…
I actually paint on the resined surface. I use a few very thin coats of resin to seal the surface, and then begin painting. Others use gesso, but I like to let the resin saturate and bond to the bare wood surface.
This piece is called “accidental contact” fitting for the time we are in right now, and also because of the fact that my lines accidentally collided in one small area.

For the Love of Turquoise
by Wendy Madan Perkins
Who doesn’t know how difficult it is to draw a pour on wood. In fact, things get more complicated when you use a rare color like Turquoise. But this artist has done an amazing job by using a mixture of black, silver, and turquoise. The shine she has added to this wood pour is just incredible.

Elizabeth has used a perfect combination of colors to draw this tiny little bunny. She must have made a lot of effort to cut this wood piece so accurately. We’ve named it Rainbow Bunny because it’s a mixture of some rainbow colors.

This is what artist says about this piece: I had a customer request a 28” Windmill so she could turn it into a clock. So I cut it out with my Jigsaw using 1/2” MDF wood and voilà!

After being told in high school that she was so bad at art that she should switch to another subject, Deby didn’t paint again for 35 years. Then a stroke released a new wave of creativity and she began exploring with dot painting, abstract and eventually acrylic pouring, and at last the joy of working with color returned. You don’t need ‘talent’ to be an acrylic pouring artist – just enthusiasm, some basic instruction, and a willingness to try, fail and try again. Paint along with her and learn from her many mistakes, and you’ll soon make great art together.
