Today’s Painting is #13 of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled TINY TUBE,  6″ x 9″ on Canvas Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

I started this painting late in the day today, just after painting two Riviera Paddle Surf Paddles and then delivering them to Riviera at the Battle of the Paddle event.  After that, I managed to sneak in a surf, then had to start this painting before heading out for my friend Heather and Josh’s wedding.

Besides the challenge to paint 20 pieces in 20 days, my other goal is to surf every single day.  It’s amazing how much better my life is when I make the time to go surf every day.

Everyone needs a ‘tiny tube’!

Life is Good,

Drew

1111 Painting by Drew Brophy Sept 2013FOR THE NEXT 20 DAYS, I’M CREATING 20 ORIGINAL ART PIECES that reflect my thought process and where my ideas originate from.    TODAY IS DAY 10 – I’M HALFWAY THERE!

Today’s Painting is the 10th of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled 1111,  11″ x 14″ on Canvas board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

For the past few years I’ve been seeing number 11:11 constantly.  I’ll just look down at my clock, and it will read 11:11, or I’ll see it in something else.

Some say that 11:11 is a Master number and that seeing it frequently creates synchronicities in your life.  Seeing it reminds me to pay attention and enjoy the simple things in life.

This is a rich man in the painting; he’s free to dream on the beach without a care in the world.  Focus on what is important, what is real, change is coming.

Life is Good,

Drew

SURFED OUT is sized 20″ x 30″ mixed media on Canvas, mostly using Uni Posca Paint Pens and Createx paint for the background.

SURFED OUT is what it’s like on a surf day when the waves are so good, you surf all day.  Finally, you get so hungry you have to come in and eat.  Then, you pass out on the beach next to a fire.  It’s the best feeling in the world, being Surfed Out.

This painting was a commission for Spencer, a nine year old surfing dynamo!

His mother commissioned this painting as a gift for him.  Spencer’s been a longtime fan of mine, and I’ve painted a lot of surfboards for him and his brother and sister, all from a surfing family.

This artwork is available as a giclee print so you can put SURFED OUT on your wall, too. You can find it in my store here.

You can watch me paint SURFED OUT on The Paint Shop Episode 3 “Crusin’ to Santa Cruz” Full Episode in HD from The Paint Shop on Vimeo.

Everyone should have a Surfed Out day.  Life is good – Drew

Magazines need a great cover if anyone’s going to open it up.  I’m glad I was asked to create the artwork for So Cal Magazine’s cover for this issue.

So Cal Magazine is geared towards travelers, and it aims to show the Southern California “extreme fun” way of life.

So Jim Kirkwood, the magazine’s Editor and founder, asked me to paint something that would show the fun lifestyle we live here in So Cal.

Most of the covers of So Cal Magazine usually are a beautiful photograph of a local spot or activity.  But this time Jim really went “outside the box” by putting my colorful art on it.

I’m stoked when my clients aren’t afraid to do something different!

We went through the sketch process, and Jim was (more…)
