You have been hearing a lot about NFTs lately. Portion.io is breaking ground at tying NFTs to physical art. I'll calling them "Phydigtal". Available now.

"Turq" digital NFT image of 48"x48" oil over acrylic on panel available at Portion.io

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. On March 4th, 2021 (late I know) I heard about NFTs. A crypto influencer, Suppoman mentions a new crypto, PAINT. He said that PAINT sells art with crypto. So I bought some. Then I looked into PAINT. Turned out the art was NFTs not tied oil paintings. The next day he talks about Portion (PRT) that sells physical art too, so when PAINT went up 600% in three days, I sold half and was able to buy more PRT. 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. Then created two more NFTs tied to two oil paintings. It took a few days for Portion to move them to the physical catagory. The physical section is mainly galleries. They also dragged Turq my digital piece into the physical section. I dont think I can change the description or price (bargain), Im fine that. 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.
