50 Paintings 50 Days Day 18 – SUP SURFING TIKI

SUP SURFING TIKI 18 of 50 Paintings by Drew Brophy Nov 12 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me.  

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

This painting is #18 of 50 in the #50Paintings series.


SIZE:  8″x 10″ paint pen on Fredrix Pro Series Archival Canvas Board.

A friend asked me about backside tube-riding on a sup.

I described how I put the paddle across my body and drag it in the face of the wave, slowing down to shoot the tube.

That’s what this tiki’s doing.

Tube riding on a standup paddleboard is awesome.

This painting study is available for purchase SOLD to a guy named Mike from NY.   Take good care of my Tiki, Mike.

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!

I hope you enjoy this series.  Thanks for reading!

    Thanks for the question, Dawn.

    I have been doing this for a while, not sure where I am getting it from, usually something shows up in the art first, then I learn about it later. I have been studying water lately, it seems to be alive. Maybe that’s why I love surfing, the water in my body wants to be liberated and free like the tube.

    Drew, why the notch, keyhole, cutout in the waves? This is something I have noticed reappears in your work all the time, more so in water pieces.
