Maria and Drew Brophy Sacred Geometry Fine artMost of you know me for my surf art.  These past few years I’ve been painting sacred geometry themes.

I want to explain why and where I’m going with it. I also am excited to show you my latest series, which I exhibited last week at The Conscious Life Expo.

I started working on these paintings a year ago (you can see all of them in the Gallery here) and finally finished them the night before we did the installation at the expo.

I want to share the meaning behind each piece with you, so I’m going to send you one newsletter for each painting with its description, over the next few weeks.

But first, how I got into this new work:


Since I was a kid I have always been fascinated with Nature,  playing in the forest and surfing on the seashore.

My love of surfing gave me a deep connection to the vibration of the earth and the waves.

As a surfer I have had the privilege of chasing waves to some the most beautiful places on earth, fulfilling the dreams I had in my youth.

Every surfer becomes an amateur meteorologist, chasing storms around the globe in the hope of finding these waves. This of course has been the inspiration for my art for the past 30 years.

There is one thing present in almost every painting of mine; the sun and the waves.

This new series of paintings “Exploring Sacred Geometry” is simply an extension of my interest in the sun and the waves.

As an artist I notice patterns, compositions, and light. Nature has very specific patterns that are consistent in the very small and very large scales. I would see them in the waves and all of nature.

I began  studying the sun to understand how it affects us and our weather. That led me to planetary physics, then on to astrophysics and quantum physics.  I’ve been driven to learn as much as I can and I study these subjects daily.

I feel the best way for me to understand complex ideas is to paint them.The concepts that I have learned have helped me to better understand how everything works.

My plan is to continue to grow as an artist and articulate these ideas for others to learn and enjoy.

Don’t worry, I will continue to do my surf paintings, but I want everyone to know that I have so  much more to share as an artist.

Thanks for being a part of this journey, Maria and I appreciate it!

Life is Good, Drew

Metatrons Cube Water Bottle Art by Drew Brophy

All living things possess the magical ingredient called water, making it the most important substance to life on earth


ANNOUNCING:  Release of METATRON’S CUBE art on premium Italian glass water bottles.  (And a FREE PINT GLASS if you order this week!)

My Water Gallery produces  glass water bottles that beautifully displays the artwork of Wyland and Guy Harvey.  So I was very excited when Kenny Laskan, Water Gallery owner, asked to license my art as well.

I love having a way to showcase my best work on a quality, premium product.

Metatron’s Cube is one of my favorite paintings for so many reasons. (Keep reading for the meaning behind it.)

But first, I want you, my readers, to get your free pint glass that My Water Gallery is giving away to the first 100 people who order a bottle!

If you pre-order my glass bottles this week, you’ll get a free pint glass (shown to your right).

There are only 100 pint glasses though, so place your order quick.

NOTE:  If you like Sacred Geometry Art, please sign up to be on my Sacred Geometry art newsletter, here.


The art on the bottle is printed from my original painting titled Metatron’s Cube.  It is mixed media on gallery wrapped canvas 60″ x 30″ and currently hangs in my home.  (Prints are available here.)

Some say that just viewing sacred geometry artwork will raise your inner vibration, creating more inner peace, joy and love for your life.  I think this is one of the reasons I love painting it so much.  The higher your vibration, the greater your joy and all good things come from that.

As a surfer, I’ve been strongly pulled to create sacred geometry art, as it visually demonstrates a deeper understanding of what connects us all to nature and the physical universe.

Metatron’s cube is a three-dimensional shape created from the center points of the thirteen circles of the Fruit of Life, which is created from the Flower of Life pattern, which is found in all living things.  Water molecules structure themselves in this same pattern.

Within Metatron’s Cube contains the blueprints of the five platonic solids; these are the building blocks of all matter.   This shape beautifully visualizes the simplicity of our universe, scaling infinitely larger and smaller.

From my studies of water and how it’s structured, I’ve come to understand thatall living things possess the magical ingredient called water, making it the most important substance to life on earth.  It rises to the sky soaking in the sun’s rays, it rains down upon the earth on the mountains where it collects information as it travels through streams and rivers on its way to the sea.  Water cleanses itself in a natural cycle of change.

Electromagnetic information given off by the sun’s rays and the earth’s minerals is vital information which are the building blocks of life, and are carried in the molecular structures of water.  These beautiful, complex structures, as seen in snowflakes, are the recordings of all-that-is and ever was.

It is crucial that we are mindful with how we use water, how we care for it and how we consume it, using integrity and great care.

I know, this is deep stuff, but it’s what I am contemplating most of the time.

About the bottles:

They are premium Italian glass water bottles with my art hand-applied, with natural inks and dyes, in the U.S.  Made and distributed by My Water Gallery.  Three % of the sale of each item goes to my chosen charity, Waves for Water.





As I mentioned in my last post, a few years ago my family and I swore off single-use plastic water bottles.  The decision to never again buy a bottled water came after we watched this amazing video called “The Story of Bottled Water.”  (Watch this one with your kids)

I received a lot of emails from people, asking me “how do you get by without buying water bottles.”  So I thought I’d share the answers with you.

We only drink from refillable bottles and take them everywhere we go. We bought a reverse-osmosis filter for our kitchen sink and we fill up from there.

In 4 years I estimate that by not buying them, we have prevented 5,000+ plastic bottles from going into landfills.

We did it for our health and for the environment.  (Plastic leaches into your water, which is harmful to your body, and plastic does not break down in landfills.)

You would think it could be hard to never buy another bottled water again, but it’s easy if you plan ahead.

One habit that has made it easy for us to never have to buy a plastic water bottles is to keep a 5 gallon jug of drinking water in the van at all times, along with refillable drinking containers.  That way we always have water on the road with us.

What do you think of the Metatron’s Cube water bottle?  What do you like about the design?

And do you store water and drink from a glass water bottle?

Respond in the comments below and let me know.  Also, if you have any tips on how to cut back on single-use bottles, share that, too.

As always, thanks for allowing me to keep in touch.

My Water Gallery SUNRISE Water Bottle and Pint Glass

Surfing is an organic experience that allows you to ride the energy of a wave of water that has traveled thousands of miles.

I want to announce the release of our new Italian premium glass water bottles:

Years ago Maria and I gave up single use plastic water bottles.

We did it for our health and for the environment.

We figure we have saved thousands of plastic bottles from going into the landfills, just by banning them from our house, our cars and our lives.

That’s one of the reasons I was so stoked to do this collaboration with My Water Gallery.  Using glass bottles is better for us and the environment.

But they look elegant and beautiful, too; the most beautiful water bottles I’ve ever seen.  The photos do not do it justice; the label with the art has a 3D effect in the light.  It’s amazing.

I wanted my readers to be one of the first to know that you can now pre-order my water bottles, and when you do, you’ll get a free pint glass (shown in the photo above).

There are only 100 pint glasses though, so place your order quick

Surfing is an organic experience that allows you to ride the energy of a wave of water that has traveled thousands of miles.   It is the closest one can get to nature, being in synch with the rhythm of the ocean and experiencing the natural forces in all their glory.

My SUNRISE painting was inspired by a surf trip I took to South Africa.   One dark chilly morning, surfboard in hand, I watched as dawn broke in a sudden burst of light, illuminating the beach and instantly warming the world around him.  This painting is a reflection of what I saw.

This art piece was painted with the intention of showing the joy of surfing and nature, and to inspire others to have an adventure of their own.


Thanks for allowing me to keep in touch.

50 paintings 50 days some ready to ship to their buyers

“Do or Do Not – There is no Try”  Yoda

Back in November, I committed to painting one paint study, every single day, for 50 days.  I called it my “50 Fascinations” because it was a study in painting anything I wanted, the things that fascinate me the most.

Each morning I woke up and had to figure out what I would paint for the day.  Then, after I got it sketched on the canvas, Maria would email my private emailing list, showing them a photo of the painting in progress (and offering it for sale).  Then we would post the progress on Facebook and Instagram, and the final finished painting before the day ended.  Each evening, I would write a blog post about the painting of the day.

It’s been exactly a month since the series came to an end, and I want to give you an update (some have been asking).

But first – I would like one bit of feedback from you:  What was your favorite paint study? Please share in the comments and let me know.  (You can see all of them here on the blog, or for Instagram users, scroll through my IG feed here).


It was a challenge turning it “on” every day for 50 days, with no rest.  But with collectors on my private preview list as my accountability partners, I had to keep to the challenge.

When doing a painting series, there are always paintings that stand out among the others. Overall, I’m happy with every single one of them, though I do have my favorites. (I’ll share that with you another time, I don’t want to influence your favorite).

Most of my art sales come from commissions, which means I’m painting what I’m asked to. This series allowed me to do something I rarely get to do:  paint anything I want for 50 days.  (And we sold every single one of the 50 paintings)

So, I tried a lot of different techniques, such as a more painterly style, and some of the painting themes were “far out there”.   But most were my traditional surf style.

The biggest lesson I learned was to trust my gut and allow myself to be spontaneous.

I found that sometimes NOT trying too hard is the best thing I can do.

Just do, don’t try.  Let the painting take me where it wants to go.

Also, something I always say was reinforced through this process:  no matter what you create, there’s always going to be someone who loves it, and someone who hates it.  

I hope for the most part, you loved it all.  And I look forward to hearing what your favorite was.

Thanks for being a part of my story,

Life is Good – Drew
