River Flow- Carved wood and epoxy aqua blue resin river. Sedona Inspired Canyon River. Same Technique as Resin River Tables

“River Flow” was created by working with my husband to carve a river in the wood and then enriched the wood with Danish oil so the gorgeous natural grain lines would be made as beautiful as possible and also take on the copper hue of the Sedona red rocks. Then, I poured a translucent blues and greens into river opening, working in layers to create a sense of depth and movement. I also poured in some white wave foam that sits just below the blue-green water. It is an aerial inspired sculpture that can hang on the wall since it is 1.5 inches deep. For those of you that love paintings with intense texture, this is one you can touch as much as you like. It is exploding with texture, from the sanded rich wood grain to the glass-like peaceful resin river.

What is Epoxy Resin?

Resin is like a liquid glass. It is a two-part epoxy that once mixed, starts to harden within about an hour, but takes 72 hours to fully cure. Resin is a demanding but exhilarating art form. 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 of nature’s beauty in resin.
