Scott SMallin photo of his Drew Brophy SATURN CUBES painting April 2014SATURN CUBES 36” x 24” mixed media on canvas.

This was painted for South Carolina photographer Scott Smallin.

We hire Scott to photograph my projects when we are in the South.  As a thank you for the excellent work he does, I offered to create an original painting for him.

Scott said that he wanted a robot destroying a city  I pondered this idea, of a robot destroying a city, with a mushroom cloud or transformers.  But that didn’t feel right to me.

So I asked myself “What is something that is real that is destroying the world?  What if there is an ideaology and a secret that is really destroying it?

I took this idea deeper.

The painting shows the battle between good and evil, with many symbols; the robot is a black cube, controlling all of the material world, spreading evil until it self-destructs into a mushroom cloud.

It’s the death of the material world, which ultimately has no effect on the spiritual world.  The spiritual world has infinite power for good.

The water represents good extinguishing evil. This painting is about the battle over information throughout time; it is about control over the information of who we really are.

The light beings show that we are pure energy. Our hearts are the engine that makes the electrical connection to everything.  It’s what holds us here in space and time. 

My passion is in ancient cultures.  I study that along with sacred geometry and the meaning behind ancient symbols and new theories in physics.

The reason I chose Saturn and the Cubes as evil, is because my research shows that this is something that people in the ancient worlds were worshipping.  They couldn’t even see Saturn; how did they know it was there?

The reason the symbol is a cube is because there is a cube shape on the Northern pole of Saturn.

Another ancient symbol is the ring of Saturn; some speculate that the “all seeing eye” is what Saturn looks like during an eclipse.  They said that Saturn is the timekeeper and that you’re trapped in a prison of time and space.

I view the world differently than most people.  Some don’t want to see it the way I do, because it’s scary.

We are born into a system that is controlled by power and greed and information.  The average person has a very hard time bucking the system.  Essentially, we are all born a slave.  Most people that are a part of the system don’t even realize that they are. 

Some people don’t know that they don’t have to do what they are doing.  They don’t have to live where they grew up; they can leave!  They don’t have to keep that job they hate; they can quit.  They don’t have to do anything that is toxic to them.

I believe that in ancient times we had it right; people knew how to live with joy and happiness.  At some point we lost that and the darkness came.

Now, things are changing again.  I see people waking up and rediscovering what’s really important and who they really are.

The world is experiencing a positive transformation right now.  I see it in myself, too.

Life is Good,

Drew

The Power WIthin Buddha Painting by (c)  Drew Brophy Nov 2013

This painting is the forth of twenty commissions that I am committed to getting finished in the next week!

The 20 commissioned paintings that I have to paint, follow on the heels of a very successful promotion, called the “20×20” that I did last month, where I committed to painting 20 paintings in 20 days.

During the “20 paintings in 20 days” all but one of those twenty paintings sold the day I painted them.  I was surprised to find that so many people out there were fascinated by the process of starting and finishing a painting every day, for 20 consecutive days.

It was a difficult commitment, to do that many paintings that fast.  But I learned a lot about myself in the process.

This painting is called THE POWER WITHIN – it’s sized 11″ x 14″ Paint Pens on Canvas Board.

It’s for a collector named Cathy P. who lives in Ohio.  Cathy wanted a painting that was “zen-like” and that incorporated Buddha and waves.Drew Brophy Meditation Art Painting the Buddha commission POWER WITHIN

I added the all-seeing eyes and rainbow energy bolts.   This depicts that power that we all have within ourselves to find peace and joy and to tap into the vibrations that we were meant to get in tune with.

I hope Cathy loves her painting.

Life is Good, Drew

Solar Flare Painting by Drew Brophy 18 x 24 Mixed Media on Canvas

SOLAR FLARE 18″ x 24″ on Canvas

This SOLAR FLARE painting was inspired by my love of the sun.  It’s mixed media on canvas, sized 18″ x 24″ using a combination of Createx paint and Uni Poscas.

I’ve had a life-long fascination with waves and the sun.

Many people don’t realize the power of the sun; that it is everything;  it gives us light, warmth and life.

I often wonder how solar wind affects our weather on a daily basis.   Sunspots can produce solar flares, directed at the earth, and have a huge impact on us.

Scientists even attribute solar flares to earthquakes, due to the fluctuation to the magnetic field.

I contemplate what kind of effects solar activity has on the waves we ride, and the intensity of the sunburn we get when surfing.

I have noticed more intensity in the sun, and I wonder if solar flares have something to do with it.  It seems as if the sun is releasing more energy; but it’s probably due to the fact that earth’s magnetic field is weakening, providing less protection.  The solar radiation is able to penetrate deeper to the surface of earth.

This change obviously affects our weather and our waves and how much sunburn our bodies get.  I wonder what other impact this solar wind has on us?

Almost all religions can be traced back to sun worship.  Why do you think that is?

If we call the Earth our Mother, then for sure the Sun is our Father.

The sun is our source of heat and light.  It is energy.  It is everything.

Life is Good,  Drew

I’m painting from the heart, just having fun with it.  

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

This Painting is #18 of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled LOVE SHACK , 8″ x 10″ on Canvas Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

My 20 Paintings in 20 Days had a hiccup on Friday, when we left town to go camping and paddleboarding for 3 days.

There wasn’t a working wifi connection where we were (there was supposed to be, but it didn’t work.)

Before getting on the road, I was running around like crazy tying up loose ends and getting obligations taken care of.

This painting, LOVE SHACK, was the vision of what I was wishing I was doing instead of the last minute hustle before leaving.

Do you like LOVE SHACK?  Leave me some feedback in the comments, please.  Your feedback is very important to me.

(If you share my posts, please tag  #20×20 #drewbrophy #SurfArt #20Pieces20Days)

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
