28 of 50 Paintings in 50 days by Drew Brophy SHARK SIGHTING Nov 22 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me.

This painting is #28 of 50 in the #50Paintings series.


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

This morning I had time for a quick surf before my studio open house.  I got to the beach and was surprised to see that no one was out surfing.  It was hot and sunny and I was stoked!

There was a shark sighting sign posted, but I didn’t think it was big deal, they’ve been posted all summer.  I had a great time surfing, all by myself, for awhile. Then one of the lifeguards, a friend of mine, hollered from the pier to get out of the water.

They’ve been kicking people out of the water.  He said the shark’s been swimming from T-street to the pier all morning.

I thought it was ridiculous that they clear the beach for a shark sighting; they live in the ocean, and I see them all the time.  It’s no big deal.

That’s where today’s inspiration came from!

This painting study is available for purchase SOLD to Chris in Washington state.

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 or text or call 949-678-8133 asap!

I hope you enjoy this series.  Thanks for reading!
