38 of 50 Paint Studies CHASING WAVES WITH FUDO by Drew Brophy Dec 2 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me.

This is #38 of 50 in the #50Paintings Paint Studies series.

TITLE:  CHASING WAVES WITH FUDO

SIZE:  11″x 14″ paint pen on Fredrix Pro Archival Canvas Board.

Today’s painting is inspired by the idea of being on a boat, chasing waves, in far away places.

 

I added something different in the sky, inspired by my good friend Mark Longenecker (well known tattoo artist from Cocoa Beach, FL, and InkMasters TV Show star).

 

Mark was painting alongside me this morning, creating his own version of the Japanese Diety called FUDO.  So I added FUDO into my sky.

FUDO is said to convert anger into compassion and cuts the ties of negative feelings to liberate us from the suffering through self control.

This painting study is available – SOLD to Elsie in Mission Viejo, CA.

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!

37 of 50 Paint Studies in 50 days - Electric Universe by Drew Brophy Dec 1 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me.

This is #37 of 50 in the #50Paintings Paint Studies series.

TITLE:  ELECTRIC UNIVERSE

SIZE:  12″x 12″ paint pen on Fredrix Pro Archival Canvas Board.

One of my hobbies is studying alternate theories in physics.

One of the theories challenging the Theory of Relativity is The Electric Universe.

It says that the Universe works on electrical principles; that energy is exchanged electrically, galaxy to galaxy, from the sun to the planets.

Everything is an electrical exchange.

San Clemente SUNRISE 19 of 50 Paintings Nov 13 2015 by Drew BrophyFOR 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 #19 of 50 in the #50Paintings series.

TITLE:  SAN CLEMENTE SUNRISE

SIZE:  11″x 14″ paint pen on Fredrix Pro Series Archival Canvas Board.

This morning I went to the San Clemente pier to begin today’s paint study.  The sunrise was so inspiring, I had to paint it.

Every day I check the waves at the pier, and this is my view.  Off in the distance is Cotton’s Point, where President Nixon used to live in the Western Whitehouse.

Midway is the famed T-Street surf break.  There are lots of nooks and crannies in between.  I’m standing on the pier, looking at the silhouettes of palm trees.

I feel so fortunate to live here.  Life is Good.

TITLE:  SUP SURFING TIKI

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.

ICBM painting 14 of 50 by Drew Brophy Nov 8 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 #14 of 50 in the #50Paintings series.

TITLE:  ICBM – INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILE

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

Last night we saw the craziest thing in the night sky.  It was a huge area lit up bright white and blue with a green tail – at first we thought it was a comet, but it was moving too slow.  Then I found out it was an ICBM, aka an INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILE.  It was launched from a submarine right off shore in Southern California.  (Here’s a video a local took of it at the beach here in town)

An ICBM is a missile that can be sent to other continents, across the world.  Last night was a test.  The military even diverted commercial air flights to run these tests.  Gotta wonder, WHY? It’s kinda scary, seeing this from my front yard.

This painting study is available for purchase SOLD to Eric Hildwein, another artist from Florida, who I’ve known for a long time.  He bought this as his son Dylan’s first ever original painting – which is cool, because his son isn’t born yet.  He’ll be here in April 2016!
