acrylic paint on Graphix film
4″ x 4″ image (8″ x 8″ matted and framed behind glass)
Poured Acrylic painting Foaming Surf depicts the delicate foam that a breaking wave leaves behind when the tide pulls the water back to the sea.
Foaming Surf is framed and matted behind glass. I use a sophisticated technique of pouring paint with added chemicals to create luscious intermixed bubbles and waves of color. Paints are selected based on the opacity, density, and color mixing properties of each color, with chemicals added to some (but not all) of them. The paint blends are poured onto Graphix film in layers, tipping and tilting to get the effect I’m after. A butane torch is used to get chemicals to rise to the surface and create cells of color to bubble up.
