As an acrylic artist, the sky is the limit. Such a versatile medium means endless possibilities. For me, painting canvases led to painting wood panels, which eventually led to painting guitars, skatedecks and nearly every other blank surface I could put slap paint on. As a gallery artist, my wood panels evolved with sculpted elements adhered to the piece, and it made sense to begin doing the same thing with my hand painted skatedecks. This is the first one complete, with three others currently underway. The clay sculpture adds a whole new dimension to the work, and makes these decks a unique piece of decor whether they hang on a wall or accent a tabletop. Adding the clay is a time consuming an arduous process, as every piece is hand sculpted and none use molds. The end result is a truly one of a kind work of art.
