Are My Paintings Melting ?

April 30, 2019

Since I started letting the acrylics drip in my paintings in 2006, I have been asked a few times if my prints are melting – haha! The truth is, the drips are on purpose and are part of my style. I love the gritty-ness of the running paint…hinting at old-school film and creating movement and feeling, which, to me, balances the bright colours and whimsical lines. Would you assume it was a painting technique or would you think the paint was ‘melting’? Comment below 🙂

Here are a few examples of my paintings where I let the drips drip:

The Space Between
The Light is Out
Pier Pressure
Quidi Vidi Slide
Soaked in Brine
Trigger Finger
Last Row
Outside the Box
Veitch’s View
