‘Live’ art-on-the-fly, flowing and changing: I used this little glass disc as a ‘stamp’ one-two-three-four times and hey presto … “wow!” I said, “now THAT is pretty cool!”

An expressionistic, exploratory artist, I create without restraint or intent. I am a passionate advocate of natural learning, and this organic approach informs all of my work, giving my creations their vibrancy and spontaneity. An abiding love of nature keeps me going when my rather warped sense of humour fails. Above all, I reject the dysfunction and pain our culture perpetuates. More of the same is of no interest to me. I say “YES” to that which is life-serving: let a new paradigm emerge!

    Jay, Is this an acrylic painting? If so, tell us how you used acrylic paint specificly in the production process, then resubmit the work. Thank you, Roza, co-host

  • Hi Rosa – the glass disc is painted with acrylics … and then I stuck it on the window and photographed it :-) Hope that clarifies things…? All the best, Jay

    A gorgeous example of the fractal “pull-apart” pattern!

  • Well, thank you for giving the technique a name for me, Richard – I had no idea :o) So in your fractal software program there’s an option to create things like this using a ‘pull-apart’ effect? And of course, you’re absolutely right – pulling apart is exactly how this came to be: its ‘twin’ imprint is part of a painting in my portfolio called ‘Random Convergence’… It amazes me how patterns can be seen in EVERYTHING… I love that :0)

    Well, I call it that sometimes. Not the catchiest of names, but that’s how I always made this sort of branching pattern before it could be done in the computer. I use Artmatic, which is not strictly a fractal program, but it’s a bit constrained compared to doing it with paint.

  • Ah, OK :o) The great thing about doing it ‘live’ with paint is, of course, that you get “two for one”, LOL :o) I love seeing these things form. They are amazing :o)
