Certificate of Authenticity & Artist Letter

“Shimmering Swells” is an impressionist resin artistry take on undulating swells just above the surface of the water. Drawing on my past work as an oil impressionist artist, I used a knife, a blowtorch, and resin with pigments, to build layers and colors that have a magical movement to them. This is one of my favorite pieces yet because the colors and energy are just so very soothing. You can really get lost in the daydream while staring at this.

What is Epoxy Resin?

Resin is kind of like a liquid glass. It is a two-part epoxy that finishes like glass, hard as a countertop, but clear and glossy as glass. 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 in the surf in resin. This is all done on a beautiful cradled wood panel with poplar wood sides. The finishing touch is to sand and stains the wood sides so the beautiful natural grain is showcased and so the resin seems to float above it.
