Blooming Metallic Viscera |Acrylic Pour Painting

Sometimes I photograph the evolution of my pour paintings and I did this with my Blooming Metallic Viscera piece. Oddly enough it went through at least two iterations before becoming what it is in these photographs.

In this case, I created a pour that was just stunning, but I wanted to “tweak” it a bit and in doing so, ruined what was special about it. So, using the same paints and same basic techniques, I re-poured over the top. Twice. And the final result was this.

The most difficult part of fluid art is knowing when to stop. I have ruined dozens of 1st iterations because of my desire to tweak and blow and add. This is something I really have to work on, LOL!

I named this Blooming Metallic Viscera because to me, the bottom portion looks like the delicate internal structures of many animals I have gutted. It’s vaguely liver-like, with flowing metallic rivers that resemble blood vessels. It is also very reminiscent of the mesentery. It’s flowery and wispy and so organic in appearance.

Whether it looks anatomic to you or floral, I guess it doesn’t matter as long as we can all agree that it’s gorgeous!
