Swoquz, just a made up word that means from the dark come many colors, or color explosion.  "When the DJ played that video, swoquz was startling!"

In this one, I wanted to experiment with black framing, but extending the color into the black.  One way I accomplished this was to Inverse select an area.  Then set my paint bucket (flood fill) with a small tolerance, and no opacity.  I magic wand selected the color I wanted to be replaced by black.  It was a fun experiment.

I'm in Louisiana, Laplace, LA tonight.  I should be sleeping but I like to make these paintings.  Half of the fun is making up the words.  I always loved poetry, so making up words is quite an experience.  It feels odd writing my journal right into the art, but what if more artists could have done this in the past?  What would Picasso write?  Rembrandt?  EinStud ha ha..)))  he is writing right now.

So on this one, i like the Liquify distortion effect, The Filter Forge Grid Warp effect, and finally, my signature, Trajan Pro.  I don't have Enview installed, so Trajan Pro will do.  I do not like the blend from colors to black and white.  I do not like the hard messy edges.  If you have any ideas to solve this (in 2019) then let me know.  I was going to try just making a painting, then teturize it.... but i do that too much. Goodnight World.
