“The Water Rose” features layers of lapping ocean waves that are so pretty and realistic you can almost feel your toes getting wet in the sand. I wanted to capture that feeling of looking down at the waves and seeing the rippled sand beneath them while watching the white seafoam spray across the beach.
Resin is a demanding but exhilarating art form. It is punishing but blissful. With just an hour of worktime, I must use every hard wrought lesson to perfect the pigmented resin I pour. I use surfboard crafting pigments, India Inks, powder pigments and more for the varying hues. Then, I grab a heat-based tool, like my blow torch and manipulate the poured layers from there. The same process that gets you a gorgeously decorated surfboard is what gets you these paintings. As a former surfer, I find myself ever eager to recapture those fleeting moments in the surf in resin.
