Paint Pouring and Photographs Collide

Paint-Pouring ~
or Photographs

I discoverd paint pouring with my friend, Cherryl, in January, 2022. I immediately realized that 'painting' with my camera  was at least as intriguing as painting with paint.


Paint-pouring uses acrylic paint mixed with water and/or some type of paint additive to improve flow and leveling. There are many methods of playing with the paint, including layering colors into a single cup or pouring directly from individual cups.


With a seemingly endless trove of YouTube tutorials available, I’ve begun experimenting with many approaches. 


The paint literally moves, which means the image is constantly changing. At this point, the end goal for me is the numerous photographs that focus on what I ‘see’ on the ever-fluctuating canvas. More often than not, the images I capture along the way are far more appealing to me than the final ‘painting’ which will alter as it dries, once again bringing a new response.

I like to paint on discarded objects. Think

  • CD covers

  • Old LPs

  • Extra tile from your recent remodel

  • Unwanted coasters

  • Used canvas

  • Toilet paper and paper towel rolls

Coming soon - images of upcycled work.

Paintings and photographs can be made into clothing, home and wall decor, and more.

Visit LeGaleriste to see my Clothing Line. I'm happy to create something inspired by you. Do you have a favorite color palete? Let's collaborate to create something amazing!

Many of my paintings have been created on keychains, mugs, serving trays, playing cards, and more on Zazzle.

You can find an ever-growing collection of both my photographs and paintings on Fine Art America that can be purchased as prints on canvas, metal, or wood, cards - or even things like shower curtains, towels in a variety of sizes, and puzzles. It's a visual shopping spree - it costs nothing to look!

Your comments there are a great gift to me. 

See something you like? Any painting can be made into a card, a magnet, piece of clothing - you name it, I'll find a way to do it! I'm also happy to create a customized painting for you with your favorite color palette. 

This scarf, now being worn in Ohio, was designed from an original painting.


This scarf, from the painting 'Bubbles' was purchased as a gift in Minnesota.

Painting can be messy. I hate wasting anything, so I found something fun to do with my colorful paper towels!
