by Steve Chase
If you’ve gone through our October Top Pours post, you must have watched Steve’s artwork there. We’re convinced that Steve is a wonderful artist and he’s really good at creating unique pieces of art. Let’s see what Steve says about this pour:
This painting is named “Shattered” because it looked like shattered stained glass to me. It’s on a 12” x 16” canvas. Colors are white, azo nickel gold, permanent violet, phthalo blue, and black. It’s an elongated, vertical puddle pour with the blue poured out in a star shape. Air pressure was applied and spun out and tilted to create the design.

Down to Earth
by Rachel McKenzie
Rachel’s thoughts about this pour:
This 9×12” gallery wrapped painting was created using leftover paints from a larger commission piece I had done for a customer. It’s an Open-Cup Pour technique in three different cups, traveling over a white paint-flooded canvas used to create negative space for that “earthy layered” look that this piece gives us.
The colors I had used were self-mixed turquoise, self-mixed beige, black, white, blue-grey, metallic 24k gold, metallic antiqued bronze, and metallic sterling silver. Finished with epoxy resin for shine and protection. Abstract art is a major part of my everyday life and a key avenue for my mental health.
I love what I create, and love seeing what others create too. I am proud and thrilled to be apart of this and to have this opportunity, and have high hopes to keep inspiring others!

Burst of Love
by Marcy Todd
It’s one of the best pieces of art we’ve seen so far. Without any doubt, we’re really inspired by Marcy’s skills. She must have spent plenty of time creating this piece of art. Marcy Says:
I Started with full coverage of a blue but kept center white. Added some random blues and purples all around the center. In the center, I added gold on the top half and light blue on the bottom half, both with a cell activator. Swiped out from the center carefully. After dry, I glued on the wood nativity scene that was painted and glittered. I really love it. ❤

by Shane Gnek
We’re glad that we have so many amazing artists in our Group. Shane’s artwork is quite unique and attractive as well. Shane has shared some tips for those who want to try their skills in this field.
Before beginning on a piece, I often think about what colors I should use and what composition and style I am aiming for. Though in the acrylic world it is difficult to pre-plan, I find myself have nothing to lose by trying to pre-plan before painting. There are three components that I considered prior to working on this piece.
First is the composition idea. I often start at the center of the canvas, however, since I was using a rectangular canvas, I decided to place the colors diagonally, allowing me to create the reaching-out effect or look I was aiming for. The second is the style. I am a fan of minimalism, so I have to remind myself to use the hairdryer wisely and sparingly and not to overblow.
So I used the hairdryer to blow the initial outline, then used mouth blowing to create my minimalist interpretation of the reaching effect. Lastly, enjoy every single process during the process of creating art!
by Penny Parker Warren
What an incredible piece of art it is. I bet anyone can easily fall in love with this marvelous pour. Looks like the artist has put in all his efforts to create an outstanding pour like this. Penny Says:
This is an 8″ x 10″ canvas. I did a geode pour which turned out quite nice. I used glitter on the silver and used glass pieces in the center to give it that geode look. I used a piece of driftwood to hang it with a string of beads on each side. I used suede leather lacing to hang it on the driftwood.
These pours are just an overview of what you’d get to see in our Facebook group while there are tons of other outstanding pours you’d love seeing there. And if you’re already a member of the group, you must keep sharing your artwork in the group because you may also get a chance to get featured in our upcoming pour.
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.
