Salt Creek by Drew Brophy 16 x 20 Painting Canvas Board Oct 2013 sFOR 20 DAYS, I’M CREATING 20 ORIGINAL ART PIECES that reflect my thought process and where my ideas originate from. 

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 #19 of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled SALT CREEK , 16″ x 20″ on Canvas Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

The inspiration for this painting came from a great surf session on Saturday.

I love the Fall season in California, because on some days we still get South swells and Santa Ana off-shore winds; the perfect combination for surfing.

This is precisely what happened this past weekend.  There was a beautiful, long period South swell.  The water was 70 degrees and not a cloud in the sky.

I imagined what it would be like to be at Salt Creek with just a few friends.  I surfed with my friend Justin and about 200 other people that I left out of the painting!

It was a great day.  Hope you like the painting.

Life is good – Drew

LOVE SHACK by Drew Brophy 8x10 Canvas Board 20x20 Series Oct 2013 sFOR 20 CONSECUTIVE DAYS, I’M CREATING 20 ORIGINAL ART PIECES that reflect my thought process and where my ideas originate from. 

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.

Today’s Painting is #15 of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled WHAT TO DO ON FURLOUGH DAY, 16″ x 20″ on Canvas Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

I was so stoked about this weekend because we had made plans to camp at Joshua Tree National Park.  We’ve been planning this trip for months with friends Kat and Justin.

It never occurred to me that a government shutdown would affect me.  Until today, when I found out that all National Parks are CLOSED due to the shutdown!  This is trivial compared to some of the real problems that other people are dealing with in light of this shutdown.

But, I’ve come to realize that we are like two different societies; us and them.  The politicians are so disconnected from the public that they only argue for their own agendas and have no idea what this nation needs.  I vote that we get rid of all of them and start with real leaders!

Over the next few days (or weeks), I suspect that the beach will be more crowded now that government workers are furloughed!

Life is Good, Drew

This painting sold to Michele from San Clemente, who was enjoying her day off from work today thanks to the Government Shutdown!  (This painting theme was her idea, by the way.)

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

Today’s Painting is the 9th of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled THE KEY IS TO LISTEN,  11″ x 14″ on Canvas board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

This is about the idea of being connected to the world and the Universe and all things in it.  By listening, I don’t mean with your ears or seeing with your eyes.   I mean being connected in a way that the human race has forgotten.

I feel that everything is alive, full of energy and in some ways if we could just learn to tap into it, we would be able to understand much more.   And with that understanding comes clarity about what’s really important in life.

Too many people are so pre-occupied with things in the fake world that they detach from the natural world.

As an artist and a surfer, I want to tap into the energy of the natural world.  I’ve learned to listen and notice the subtleties and I’m getting better at it.  The more I tap out of the fake world, the more in tuned to the natural world I become.

Life is Good,  Drew
