Don Shobe believes the greatest form of flattery is imitation.

A few months ago, the Eldora resident watched an internet video on the art of paint pouring. Artists create abstract pieces on a canvas.

Shobe created his first paint pour abstract, and then another, and another, until he'd done nearly 60.
