Dive right In!
Did you know that humans naturally feel more tranquil around water?  I know I've always felt that way.  That's why I started making these "Rippling Water" paintings...To promote a presence of tranquility in a room.   Technically I call these works the "Some Blue Velvet Morning Pond" series, a reference to the truly psychedelic song "Some Velvet Morning" by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood!  
How's it Made? 
I've pioneered a process in which I suspend concentrated woodworking dyes in resin by marbelizing it with my hands over several pours.  I wear gloves of course... I'd show you but then I'd be the magician giving up his secrets... I can tell you though that the resin I use is high gloss UV-inhibiting and that each piece comes with nice French Cleat hanging hardware for a sleek flush mounting.

These pieces can be used for a table top and I'm happy to design a table to spec for you:)
