(Lester Beach, MB Canada)
I've been obsessed with surfing, forever, from boogie boards at Grand Beach to dreams of one day seeing surfing competitions on the infamous north shore of Hawaii!
I connected through Etsy with a photographer living with Hawaii, his partner makes beach jewelry and they sell their art through Etsy.
He gave his permission for me to use one of his photographs as inspiration for a painting.
The painting was challenging, I used impasto paints for the FIRST time, just jumped in. They dry so fast! it's crazy. I loved them.
This is a large painting 30 " x 40", I hope you feel the movement of the wave, and feel the peaceful beach at the end of the tunnel.
