It’s been a long time since I did a board, and this one is a little different. I bought this board as a blank, brand new, I used Liquitex achrylic ink and paint, and I finished it with Benwood Stays Clear achrylic polyurethane… It’s beautiful and may represent a new direction for my work.
From Sea to Shining Sea is a two sided piece, Both sides represent beaches I have been lucky enough to visit.
The top side represents the first ocean I ever saw, the South Atlantic. Soft rolling beaches, beautiful blue green water, and hearty grasses. My childhood vacation beaches will always be held in my heart.
Sunsets over the ocean in the Pacific Northwest are beautiful, striking vistas, jutting rocks, tough gnarled vegetation. The north pacific is a striking difference from the soft sands of the east, but they are so very beautiful, I will always cherish the images of this beautiful and amazing landscape. This is the bottom side of the skateboard deck.
Lightning over the desert, is one of mother natures most impressive displays of color and intensity. This image captures the moment when lightning hits the sand in late afternoon.
I love the moon, the stars and night silhouettes, this work combines all these loves with a wandering stream. This piece looks best in medium to low light making it perfect for bedrooms, studies, and hallways.
