20 in X 24 in X 1.5in Poplar / Birch Wood Panel lacquered sides Ready to Hang Comes with a Signed Certificate of Authenticity "Eternal Tides" was a monument in resin layering. I used many layers to build a sense of depth under the water. You can peer through those layers like you would with your toes in the sand in the water. Glints of gold peek through and so do spots of corals, but the real star is the foaming blue waves. Seaspray at its finest. the momentum of the waves is that they are rushing in towards you about to crest and break. One of the things I love most about this painting is looking at it from the sides. The resin has a dome-like edge finish that appears to float above the Poplar wood frame and it really showcases the brilliance of the resin in gorgeous juxtaposition against the hue of the finished wood grain. 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.
