I continue to take advantage of the mornings I am free while my children are at school. Today I experimented with acrylic pouring techniques, and plan to do a series of paintings that explore the basic shapes of the bonsai. Above are pics of my first attempts. They are quite large, poured on 24×36″ canvases. Pouring acrylic is tricky business, but I am happy with how these two paintings turned out. Suminagashi is still on my mind, and I will continue to play with that technique as the winter comes upon us.
