As we race through existence chasing our dreams, we often shed our pure intentions and exchange them for the heavy burdens we carry. But now and then, we allow the energy of the Universe to flow through us without judgement and without ego. During such intense yet peaceful moments we are reminded of the potential that surrounds us.
Surfing brings me great joy on a very spiritual level. I get a lot of my inspiration while out in the water with friends, gazing at the clouds and witnessing the water reform and bounce light around. This surf painting is a glimpse of tranquility and inspiration. An ode to the sense of oneness, mystery, beauty and inspiration that can engulf or embrace us.
“Golden Opportunity” was painted in acrylic and framed by reclaimed distressed wood with the painting itself measuring 8.875 inches by 14.875 inches.The rough texture and grain of the wood frame compliment the richness and luster of the metallic gold paint used. I like how the harshness of the surface contrasts the smoothness and flow of the composition.
I hope this surfing painting refocuses your gaze forward towards the golden opportunities that await us. This original painting is available for purchase, as are a very limited run of signed archival giclée prints on my online store.
