Underwater Light

“Underwater Light” is aptly named. I created it to give the impression of streams of light peeking through choppy tropical waters. I worked in layers (each needing to set 72 hours) for a depth of field that lets you feel like you are underwater looking at the sun. As a special treat for the owner of this piece, I used a phosphorescent pigment in one layer for the streams of light. This layer becomes visible only in the dark. It is a light blue that looks magnificent! The top layer has dappled light through the water that you really have to see in person because cameras just don’t capture it the way a human eye does.

What is Resin?

Resin is kind of like a liquid glass. You may have heard it referred to as epoxy. Resin Artistry 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.
