Step Aside Black Velvet Painting!

Here's a new popular art form that I can see taking a chunk out of the black velvet "art" market: pour painting.

I must admit it is mesmerizing to watch this stuff dribble. And if you get your colours right and time it right, the result is gorgeous. But I don't think it will replace serious art, the kind of art that requires a technical education and an appreciation of art history, composition, technique, etc.
