MELTING POT Painting by Drew Brophy 9 x 12 Gesso Board Oct 2013 20x20 Series Uni PoscaFOR 20 CONSECUTIVE DAYS, I’M CREATING 20 ORIGINAL ART PIECES that reflect my thought process and where my ideas originate from.    TODAY IS DAY 17!

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.

Today’s Painting is #17 of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled MELTING POT, 9″ x 12″ on Gesso Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

.

Today’s painting inspiration was sparked by an unexpected visit from the State Board of Equalization.
.
They sent their tax auditors into the various businesses along the “surf Ghetto” of San Clemente this morning.
.
One of the auditors walked in my studio and demanded to see our papers! (resale tax documents…)
.
After asking me a line of official questions, he said “I had a painted surfboard of yours as a kid.  It was my favorite; you painted a melting sun and wave on it.”
.
Back in my old painting surfboards for  …Lost days, I used to paint a lot of melting waves and suns.  So, I decided to paint one today.
.
I hope you like it!

Life is Good,  Drew

Today’s Painting is #16 of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled STORMY SKY, 9″ x 12″ on Canvas Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

Today’s painting was inspired when Maria and I drove along Pacific Coast Highway this morning, and looked out at the horizon as we passed POCHE Beach.
.
The sunrise from the east was illuminating the ocean, with dark, brooding skies contrasting over the water.
.
The ocean was emerald green, and milky from the southern winds stirring up the sediment, causing it to glow against the stormy skies.
.
It made for beautiful, yet slightly ominous, lighting on the water.  Hope you like it.
.
Life is Good, Drew

Today’s Painting is #14 of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH,  (aka SUPER FIT WOMAN) 16″ x 20″ on Canvas Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

This painting was inspired by seeing all the super fit women at the Battle of the Paddle this past weekend.

Paddleboarding just does something to a woman’s physique, toning all of her muscles and making her strong.

It’s great to see more women out on the water enjoying nature and living an active, healthy lifestyle.  The women who are into paddleboarding seem to be strong, confident and adventurous.  It’s very attractive.

This painting is dedicated to all those women who refuse to give up their youth and choose to enjoy life to the fullest.  I think that’s why we are all here.

Life is Good,

Drew

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 11th of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled FEELING HAPPY,  18″ x 24″ on Canvas.

This morning when I walked into my studio,  I turned on some music, and I was feeling happy.  I wasn’t sure yet what I was going to paint for the day.  Then I noticed among the mess in my painting room, a sketch on a canvas that I had started years ago.  I have a lot of those sketches laying around.

It was just a rough sketch in pencil, and everything in it was smiling; the sun, the mountains, the water, everything.  Since I was feeling so happy, I felt that these happy guys deserved to be brought to life today.

Hope they make you happy, too!

Life is Good,

Drew
