These are some mixed media abstract paintings from my new series, “Spun Out”, made using my prototype spin-art machine.
Below are selected abstract works I have painted over the years from age 17 through present, listed in random order. Portrait images are cropped.

Several of my abstract paintings are for sale & many are for sale as bRiAN moSs ARt postcards for 75¢ or less.
Artists often ask about what media / medium I use. Many like the look of canvas but in order to get finer detail I usually paint on flat surfaces such as foam-core. As for media I use a wide variety of pigments, paints, inks & solvents to make my studio paintings colorful & vibrant. Two of my favorite lines of art materials are professional acrylics & fluid acrylics . (disclosure: I have been purchasing the majority of my art supplies from Blick for years because of their commitment to quality, and for their selection and low pricing. I am an also a paid affiliate, which means if you order through any affiliate link I earn a small commission for the referral).
Because I am self taught I have no limitations and this allows me to experiment freely. I have little formal instruction so this has also given me few barriers. I paint what I like. It is not unusual for me to light alcohol based inks on fire, or mix acrylics with household solvents to get a look …. my techniques are very unorthodox and I will expand those into posts here on my website.

These were created between 1996 thru present using various software programs including Adobe Photoshop & Macromedia, and FREE open source fractal software such as Mandelbulber, Incendia, and Apophysis to name a few. I am not that skilled at creating digital art but I sure do enjoy the tranquility of it. They aren’t sorted in any particular order. Also view my Midnite Vultures series.
These pop art paintings were made using single-use acetate stencils & spray paint, with a touch of acrylic. I painstakingly make each stencil by hand. I use them. Then I throw the stencil into the garbage (I know, I wish I could compost them but they aren’t recycled in any way).
This is a handful of drawings & sketches from my teens & early twenties that I saved or had the forethought to take a picture of. I probably have more that I haven’t seen in 15 years hiding somewhere. Assorted mediums: pen&ink, colored pencil, marker, pencil, watercolor. Also view my b&w doodles & colored line art doodles.
I am uploading collages & mindless doodles from my early teens so that young artists may not be discouraged by their current skill level. I will scan more notebooks if & when they surface.
Surprised how I managed to save some of these earlier paintings & doodles.
