The "Waves In The Wood" Series
Welcome and thanks for your interest in this art.
You're on to something pretty unique here...
a "Waves in the Wood" series painting is:
-An exploration of the surf breaks and fantasy coastlines embedded within the grain of a single board.
-An artistic invention by one, Mac Hillenbrand.
-A completely original natural object that offer's it's owner a lifetime of joy.
-An artwork exploring the cosmic parallel between the aesthetic patterns water moving through trees and the waves in the seas' share...
-A tool for promoting day dreaming in your life.
-A reminder that new surf breaks can still be discovered
-An often quite long artwork that can fit in places other artworks won't such as along a couch, over a doorway, on a soffit or over a bed like a floating headboard
-a painting made out of a solid hardwood board, with waves hand painted along the grain lines in-between multiple layers of tinted high gloss UV-inhibiting Artresin' resin, signed in the wood, sealed on all sides and delivered with a sturdy French Cleat!
-A magnificent utilization of the 3-dimensional characteristics of nature's hologram; WOOD!
-A painting that uses time as a medium as the waves within it are derived from the annual grow rings of the tree.
-An often locally sourced piece of urban timber that would have gone to the landfill had it not been intercepted and turned into art.
-A wonderfully un-expected gift for anybody who loves Art, woodworking or the Ocean.
