Everyone uses computers to check if the waves are good.  But you can’t beat the feeling of checking the waves in the old school way.

 

There’s nothing like taking a drive to that old mysto spot, passing chickens on the dirt road and pulling up over the sand dunes to see what the waves have in store for you.  And if they are good, you are ready to go.

This Paint Study is SOLD to Scott A, an avid surfer, and, and avid collector of my surf art!

Titled FULL MOON TUBES– 11″x 14″ paint pen on canvas board.

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.

Lighthouse by Drew Brophy Nov 2013HATTERAS LIGHTHOUSE paint pen on canvas board sized 11″ x 14″, Medium:  Uni Posca Paint Pens.

The lighthouse in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, was a part of my life as a young surfer.

I lived in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, a six hour drive south from Buxton, NC at the time, and in Myrtle Beach, the waves are small.

So, when the waves got big in Hatteras, my friends and I would make the drive north.

We had many great surf sessions in front of this lighthouse in Buxton.

Since then, the lighthouse was moved off the sand to another spot.

This painting reflects my memories of back in the day, when the lighthouse was a beacon to all surfers when the waves got big.

This painting went to a couple who have a house in Buxton.  I hope they love it.

Life is Good,
