This Painting is #18 of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled LOVE SHACK , 8″ x 10″ on Canvas Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

My 20 Paintings in 20 Days had a hiccup on Friday, when we left town to go camping and paddleboarding for 3 days.

There wasn’t a working wifi connection where we were (there was supposed to be, but it didn’t work.)

Before getting on the road, I was running around like crazy tying up loose ends and getting obligations taken care of.

This painting, LOVE SHACK, was the vision of what I was wishing I was doing instead of the last minute hustle before leaving.

Do you like LOVE SHACK?  Leave me some feedback in the comments, please.  Your feedback is very important to me.

MELTING POT Painting by Drew Brophy 9 x 12 Gesso Board Oct 2013 20x20 Series Uni PoscaFOR 20 CONSECUTIVE DAYS, I’M CREATING 20 ORIGINAL ART PIECES that reflect my thought process and where my ideas originate from.    TODAY IS DAY 17!

I’m painting from the heart, just having fun with it.  You might love ’em, you might hate ’em, but either way, I hope they invoke a feeling for you.

Today’s Painting is #17 of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled MELTING POT, 9″ x 12″ on Gesso Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

.

Today’s painting inspiration was sparked by an unexpected visit from the State Board of Equalization.
.
They sent their tax auditors into the various businesses along the “surf Ghetto” of San Clemente this morning.
.
One of the auditors walked in my studio and demanded to see our papers! (resale tax documents…)
.
After asking me a line of official questions, he said “I had a painted surfboard of yours as a kid.  It was my favorite; you painted a melting sun and wave on it.”
.
Back in my old painting surfboards for  …Lost days, I used to paint a lot of melting waves and suns.  So, I decided to paint one today.
.
I hope you like it!

Today’s Painting is #16 of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled STORMY SKY, 9″ x 12″ on Canvas Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

Today’s painting was inspired when Maria and I drove along Pacific Coast Highway this morning, and looked out at the horizon as we passed POCHE Beach.
.
The sunrise from the east was illuminating the ocean, with dark, brooding skies contrasting over the water.
.
The ocean was emerald green, and milky from the southern winds stirring up the sediment, causing it to glow against the stormy skies.
.
It made for beautiful, yet slightly ominous, lighting on the water.  Hope you like it.

FURLOUGH DAY by Drew Brophy 16 x 20 Canvas Board 20x20 Series Painting Oct 1 2013 sFOR 20 CONSECUTIVE DAYS, I’M CREATING 20 ORIGINAL ART PIECES that reflect my thought process and where my ideas originate from.    TODAY IS DAY 15!

Today’s Painting is #15 of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled WHAT TO DO ON FURLOUGH DAY, 16″ x 20″ on Canvas Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

I was so stoked about this weekend because we had made plans to camp at Joshua Tree National Park.  We’ve been planning this trip for months with friends Kat and Justin.

It never occurred to me that a government shutdown would affect me.  Until today, when I found out that all National Parks are CLOSED due to the shutdown!  This is trivial compared to some of the real problems that other people are dealing with in light of this shutdown.

But, I’ve come to realize that we are like two different societies; us and them.  The politicians are so disconnected from the public that they only argue for their own agendas and have no idea what this nation needs.  I vote that we get rid of all of them and start with real leaders!

Over the next few days (or weeks), I suspect that the beach will be more crowded now that government workers are furloughed!

Life is Good, Drew

This painting sold to Michele from San Clemente, who was enjoying her day off from work today thanks to the Government Shutdown!  (This painting theme was her idea, by the way.)

Today’s Painting is #14 of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH,  (aka SUPER FIT WOMAN) 16″ x 20″ on Canvas Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

This painting was inspired by seeing all the super fit women at the Battle of the Paddle this past weekend.

Paddleboarding just does something to a woman’s physique, toning all of her muscles and making her strong.

It’s great to see more women out on the water enjoying nature and living an active, healthy lifestyle.  The women who are into paddleboarding seem to be strong, confident and adventurous.  It’s very attractive.

This painting is dedicated to all those women who refuse to give up their youth and choose to enjoy life to the fullest.  I think that’s why we are all here.

Life is Good,

Drew
