"Turq" digital NFT image of 48"x48" oil over acrylic on panel available with NFT ownership proof at Portion.io - Physical gallery at 2307 Broadway, New York (temp. closed)

Two years ago, I started to just play with acrylic colors on 48x48 panels. To push the colors further I put on a layer of clear Gesso and shifted to oil paints on top. I realized that I was wasting paint. An Artist friend, Tom Gilleon helped me figure out how to use Photoshop to try different colors. Now I play in paint, photograph, play with it in Photoshop, paint the updates, repeat. Portion (PRT) sells physical art too. I believe Portion will be big. I have lived a charmed life as an early adopter. At the beginning of the internet, a Yahoo search for art brought up the Louvre, me and 38 others. At the beginning of Ebay when there were only 300-600 listings for paintings, I sold all of my surreal period works. Enjoyed being in and selling hundreds of paintings in 27 galleries including in SOHO for 6 years and treated extremely well by all of them. I feel the same luck striking again. I have thousands of digital images. So I picked my favorite to create my first NFT. I minted it on Portion as a digital work. The actual painting looks a little different than the digital. I painted this over a year ago so I don't remember at what stage the digital is. Also, lighting makes a big difference. Here are examples.

I truly appreciate all of my collectors! If you own one of these listed as "Private collection" you probably bought the painting at a gallery and I don't have your name. Please contact me if you want to be named and I can update my provenance records.
THANK YOU!
