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.

TITLE:  SHARK SIGHTING

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.

TITLE:  MAROONED

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

I am fascinated with idea of being marooned on an island.

I would get busy building, fishing and surviving.

I would shape a surfboard or paddle board for sure.

The only question would be whether or not I would want to be saved.
