Creating a series… Surf

Over the years of painting I’ve discovered that working on a series really helps with exploration and taking risks. I like to do several very similar paintings in different sizes and different shapes while exploring an idea. This allows for experimentation and going beyond your comfort level …since you’ve already worked on your original idea.

After being immersed in my highly texture fish series, which were done on very horizontal skinny gallery wraps and also being inspired by watching the surf when i get to the beach, I thought that these long skinny panels would work well.

36×12″ canvases worked perfectly. Also on this series i wanted to use heavy metallic golds and thick modeling plaster fir drama and interest.

I also did some smalls and mini surf paintings.
