Artwork: Dad Surfing at The North Shore with his Wife and Children Rooting Him On.
This painting was commissioned by Krista Weymar for her husband Jarrod‘ surprise 50th. I had been in touch with Jarrod in the past year when he sent me via instagram, a pic of his new tattoo sleeve inspired by one of my paintings, “Pot of Gold”.
So it was an absolute joy to get to know the family better by depicting them at one of their favorite surf destinations, The North Shore of Oahu.
Krista gave me freedom to create what felt right. And so I took the albums of photos she sent me and came up with a vision straight from my mind’s eye while keeping the personalities of this gorgeous family intact.
I’m really happy with how it turned out. I had a lot of fun with stylizing the abstract wave formations and getting a unique expression of this family’s happy place. and so is Jarrod and his family.
What’s more important though is Krista and Jarrod are stoked. He texted me after receiving it, “The piece is amazing. Love it!!!!! I am amazed how it changes from close up to a few feet away. That’s just amazing how you manage to create that“.
Can’t ask for more than that! Whoo-hoo!!
I have am releasing a Limited Edition of signed prints of this piece. You can choose a canvas or paper giclée or a very exclusive Artist Proof. See below for options and details.
