Before and After

The 'After' painting is the result of a 'redo'.  When I started with Diane Williams and Chuck Potter, I was fascinated with texture (gravel), rust, and ink.  I liked the result and displayed it for a while.  But my style changed over the past years, and I decided to use the texture, but rework the composition.  I stuck with ink and rust, but did more paint pouring. I think it is all the better for this.

Pour Moi

BIG DEAL! I am changing my logo today.  It is now Pour Moi (See left).  Pour Moi is french for "For Me", and is a pun on my new approach to art. My main process is pouring paint.  It is like sculpting with paint and I am continuing to explore it's nuances.  Thanks for your support. Pat. Feel free to view my blog at pourmoiart.com

This week has inspired me to re-commit to my art.  Saturday a couple from Concord invited me into their home to 'try on' my art.  They could have purchased some large mass produced work from a local shop, but they wanted to support the local art community by purchasing original art. They bought some of my favorites. I hope this is an indication of the revitalization of the interest in collecting 'real' art.
