Dreamers Illusion

Title: Dreamers Illusion

Painted in May of 20/20

Size: 16”X20”

 

Technical data: Fluid Art

Technique: “Dutch Pour“

The canvas is flooded with White House paint mixed with Floetrol an acrylic extender. The chemical reaction mixing these two together causes cells to form which gives interest to the painting. The colors are then chosen and also mixed with floetrol and applied in a pattern of your choosing. The applied colors are then covered over with additional white paint with a blow dryer, then blown out in the opposite direction until you arrive at the desired composition or close to it, then if needed you gently blow the paint either with a straw or your mouth to move the paint to areas until you reach your desired effect and am satisfied with the results.

The colors I chose are teal green, magenta, gold and purple with a touch of blue. Color choice is important because when certain colors blend or touch they will produce other colors or shades but you must be careful and mindful that if applied wrong or in the wrong combination Or sequence they will muddy the colors and ruin your piece.

 

The name of the piece is “Dreamers Illusion”

Colors and movement in a piece can transport one to an animated mood of happiness, lighthearted carefree places in our minds as if in a dream state. Giving the illusion of peace and tranquility so we can cope with the stresses the life throws at us.

    Born: January 5, 1956

    I’m a self taught artist so no formal training or schooling, but that did not stop me from expressing myself through art. Art was a coping mechanism from a very young age due to trauma. My twin sister and I were given up for adoption at the tender age of 4 years of age. We spent time in foster care but we were blessed,because we managed to stay together,but sadly we did experience loss of three other siblings that we were separated from thru this ordeal. Life was difficult but we had each other and Art.

    I am now a mom of four grown children and grandmother to 8. I am recently retired from a successful business in Dog breeding and some limited Showing, was awarded The Who,s Who award twice for leadership in my field. I have a lot more time now to explore my artistic whims. I have tried different mediums like Acrylics and Oil,,but recently discovered Fluid Art, have to say it is my new love. There are so many techniques to explore, but what I love most about this form of art is that you have no real control over the end result and there is always a surprise at the end, and who doesn’t like surprises. There are skills involved from selection of paint colors to application and flow of the paint and most importantly consistency of paint mixtures, because each technique requires a different consistency in the recipe,,it is an art to make beauty.
