I had a lot of fun making these two, mini, surfer paintings for Artigras, and I just wanted to share them with you all because I'm sure many can relate to these scenes. As surfers, boaters and watermen and women, we encounter and interact with marine life on a regular basis and we all have a story to tell. I enjoyed bringing the human element back into the paintings and what better way to start than with surfers. We are out there with the most interesting creatures right under our feet (or nibbling our feet) and most of the time we don't even know it! The Surfer and the Bull on West Palm Beach original is still for sale in a dark blue floating frame for $150.
I would love to hear some of your stories to possibly make more minis of the ones that I am inspired by, or can envision as paintings. You can comment on the blog, Facebook, or via email with a marine life encounter of your own, and if you have pictures, definitely send those too! If I make a painting of your story, I will gladly send you the first, 11"x14" limited edition print of 50! Hope to hear from you soon!
