This painting is #5 of 50 in the #50Paintings series:

Titled SKULL– 8″x 10″ paint pen on canvas board.

In the spirit of Halloween, I felt a skull would be a great subject today.  Skulls are so much fun to draw.

It is fascinating to see strange skulls of the world, from elongated Inca skulls to dinosaurs.  Makes you wonder who or what they were.  It is also a reminder that life is short.

 One of my goals with this series is to make original art affordable for those who want it.   If interested in adding tomorrow’s to your collection, please email info@drewbrophy.com or text or call 949-678-8133 asap!

Have you ever surfed during a full moon?  It is amazing, everything turns to shades of blue grey.

I use to live ocean front at Pipeline and I surfed during a full moon many times, It is so cool how your eyes adjust, then your hearing and feelings are heightened.  Surfing tubes under the moonlight is awesome.

I have always been fascinated with fire; I love its warm glow in the night.

Imagine how different it was before electricity, or in the dark ages when the night was feared.

I love the darkness of the night, I believe we need it and we should embrace it.

We have many candles in our house and we often sit by the glow of a fire in our backyard.

It has a certain energy, primal, and soothing.  It’s like the moths who travel far, mesmerized by the light in the darkness, they are drawn to it even if it burns their wings.

What do you enjoy about the glow of fire?  How does it make you feel?  Share in the comments.

Transformation by Drew Brophy 50Paintings Oct 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me. 

I’m painting whatever comes to me each morning when I wake up. 

You might love ’em, you might hate ’em, but either way, I hope they invoke a feeling for you.

 

This painting is #2 of 50 in the #50Paintings series, titled TRANSFORMATION – 11″x 14″ paint pen on canvas board.

This painting began in my backyard this morning.

 I have always been fascinated by butterflies, they are so fragile and light.

A few years ago we planted a butterfly garden in our back yard.   Now the butterflies are abundant in my garden.

I watch them lay eggs, the caterpillars grow getting fatter day by day, and then they sneak off to the big sleep in their chrysalis.  There they transform into something entirely different.  Amazing!

This painting study is available for purchase SOLD! To Chris and Brandy Gese in Spokane, WA.

One of my goals with this series is to make original art affordable for those who want it.   If interested in adding the next one to your collection, please email info@drewbrophy.com or text or call 949-678-8133.

I hope you enjoy this series.  Thanks for reading!

FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me. 

I’m painting whatever comes to me each morning when I begin the new painting for the day.  I’m just having fun going with it.  

You might love ’em, you might hate ’em, but either way, I hope they invoke a feeling for you.

This painting is #1 of 50 in this #50Paintings series, titled MAKING FRIENDS – 9″x 12″ paint pen on canvas board.

This series is about 50 things that fascinate me; it’s an exercise of letting ideas flow free in quick paint studies.

I have always have been fascinated with aliens.

I started this painting this morning at my 2nd office, the San Clemente Pier.

As I watched the waves I imagined all the things that could hide in the ocean depths, I think of Aliens not in space but right here living in the ocean.

Maybe they will one day just walk out and say hi. Maybe they would be friendly.  Maybe dolphins are the aliens.

Maybe we are.
