In the Surging Tide, I see a mass of jellyfish and other sea creatures washing up on the shore of a pristine beach.

Surging Tide is a small, framed acrylic painting. I begin by selecting my paints taking into account the opacity, density, and color mixing properties of each color. I add floetrol (an additive that improves the flow and leveling of paint) and silicone. The big moment comes when I pour the liquid concoction onto Graphix film, tilting and tipping to get the look I want. I use a butane torch to get cells of color to bubble up to the surface.
