"Stellar Balustrade" 48" X 12" X 1.5" Cradled Wood Panel Hand Mixed Stained Wood Sides to Match Signed Certificate of Authenticity Ready to Hang On "Stellar Balustrade" I wanted to capture a sweeping intensity of peering into a scene so much bigger than yourself, be it a nebula captured from afar or a vast ocean scene at night. I worked in many layers with a blowtorch manipulating each into a composite of depth and twisting earnestness. The cool toned blue, purples, greens, and blacks play against the soft white and gold highlights. At 12" x 48" it is really quite sprawling and eye-catching. It takes a bit for your eyes to move across the whole piece. Usually, I love to pick an orientation, vertical or horizontal for the piece as I work, but with this one I loved both ways equally so for the first time I've included both options in the listing. I love that because as time goes on you can switch it and experience it in a whole new way. Feel free to ask me anything about how I made it. (????) What is Resin? 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.
