Since becoming a surfer in 1966 when I was 12, I've always looked at waves the way a surfer does. Recently that changed. I started noticing that even "bad" waves looked interesting. Most waves, as they break, become a cylindrical type of prism of refracted light. And even if a wave does not pitch and form a tube, it's still reflecting light from so many surfaces, ever changing, ever moving until it dissolves into the sand. Not an easy thing to paint, but still, a very compelling subject for a painting. I've been busy on this new series for several months now. We have sold many originals and are committing the best ones to limited editions. I tend do them either small or big. At, say, 48x48" they can be very compelling and can make a powerful statement in a room. They have an almost abstract quality. I just delivered some to a gallery in Laguna that focuses on very contemporary work. These paintings fit well in this setting. Please stop by the gallery in Solana Beach, when you can, to see this new work, we'd love to see you!
