A little playing and experimenting in "Fluid Acrylic Art" medium

I've been amazed at this particular style of art recently. To me, it replicates the natural world of simple building blocks creating complexity. Taking a few different colors, layering them in a cup, repeating the sequence, then simply and slowly pouring it out onto the canvas results in the mixture of densities and qualities self organizing. But, to reveal the underlying beauty, you need to stretch the mixture out on the canvas by simply tilting it in various directions.

This self organization is not unlike the way the natural world works to create a myriad of forms and repetitive shapes.

I think that's gorgeous.

My wife has been on me to play with the medium a bit and make a coffee table with the results on top.

You've made me want to actually do that...

Please, go for it! You'll seal it with resin to finish, right?

Then take pics and post on ATS, I'd love to see the final result.

My wife is a silversmith, a painter and does jewelry... like she makes her own links and makes the chain and then goes from there. She makes rings from quarters and silver dollars. She tumbles her own rocks and makes her own settings.

I....

Can make an excellent beer, grow things really well and make an amazing dinner.

So this is 20,000 leagues out of my experience zone, but I was thinking I can do it.

I've a shop I can sneak out to so the first 27 results that look like vomit can be safely thrown away.

I'm going to give it a shot.

Thanks!!!!

Here is another piece I made tonight. I call it, "Wolf 357" since I can see a pink wolf profile facing left in the mid-upper left.

Beautiful.

Would you do one with pinks and bright oranges? Especially with some hot pink, like sunset colors. I love that color combo.

That's great. Don't be intimidated, here is a YouTube link to an awesome artist that is also a great video instructor in this medium.

My wife has been kind enough to message me with 6458763509673409567340967309673 youtube videos on the subject.

I'm thinking she is hinting at something.

Not entirely sure though... perhaps I should ask her.

I have a buddy he does that. Has a large kiddie pool filled with the viscous ooze, throws the oil paints across the surface and dips 3D shaped objects into it. Brilliant stuff this tech!

Isn't it crazy: how those are so beautiful?

Even without explanation; nor intellectualization; nor over-analysis; nor pareidolia?

Just deeply beautiful.
Then the other stuff is the way we silly apes have fun, no?

I like this one a lot.

It's stunning and trippy.

If you look at it dead in the middle and hold your eyes still it's almost if some of it moves.

I hear ya. And the act of making them is very peaceful...serene. It instill and reinforces patience to allow gravity and the natural forces of fluid dynamics to take over for you....and don't get in her way.

All too often I overthink.........and this provides me that outlet to stop all that and just let nature happen.
