47 of 50 Paint Studies MINDS EYE by Drew Brophy Dec 11 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me.

This is #47 of 50 in the #50Paintings Paint Studies series.  Only 3 left to go!

TITLE: MIND’S EYE

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

What if we got it all wrong?  What if this biological organism we know as our bodies isn’t really us; what if it’s just a vessel; but our mind’s eye is like a spaceship; actually from somewhere else.

Maybe what we are seeing and creating is like a video game and our bodies are the avatar.

If you knew that this life is just an experience, how would it be different for you?


If you knew that the REAL you is at the controls somewhere, and that maybe the real you is choosing these experiences for you, how would that change the way you see things in your life?

This Paint Study is available.  To add it to your collection, please text or call 949-678-8133.

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 info@drewbrophy.com or text or call 949-678-8133 asap!

I hope you enjoy this series.  Thanks for reading!

38 of 50 Paint Studies CHASING WAVES WITH FUDO by Drew Brophy Dec 2 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me.

This is #38 of 50 in the #50Paintings Paint Studies series.

TITLE:  CHASING WAVES WITH FUDO

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

Today’s painting is inspired by the idea of being on a boat, chasing waves, in far away places.

 

I added something different in the sky, inspired by my good friend Mark Longenecker (well known tattoo artist from Cocoa Beach, FL, and InkMasters TV Show star).

 

Mark was painting alongside me this morning, creating his own version of the Japanese Diety called FUDO.  So I added FUDO into my sky.

FUDO is said to convert anger into compassion and cuts the ties of negative feelings to liberate us from the suffering through self control.

This painting study is available – SOLD to Elsie in Mission Viejo, CA.

POCHE FLAG 17 of 50 Paintings in 50 Days by Drew Brophy Nov 11 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me.  

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

This painting is #17 of 50 in the #50Paintings series.

TITLE:  POCHE FLAG

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

In Capo Beach, right outside of San Clemente, CA, there’s an area called Poche Beach.

One day, many years ago, a big storm washed the remnant of a giant tree up on the shore at Poche.  Someone saw that big piece of driftwood and placed a flagpole in it, and then erected an American flag.

The Poche Flag has been through many storms and winds.  It still stands there today, as a tribute to our country and our veterans.  You could say it’s become a local icon.

With this winter’s El Nino storms coming, the Poche flag is going to be in for it’s biggest fight yet.

I decided to paint this iconic flag in celebration of Veterans Day today.

What I like the best about the Poche flag is that it happened organically. It wasn’t sanctioned by any government or organization; it was a combination of nature and man, coming together to display a love for our country and our community, on a beautiful beach.

This painting study is available for purchase SOLD to San Clemente local Steve Kuhn. He’s a huge fan of the Poche beach flag.  Glad he got it.

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 info@drewbrophy.com or text or call 949-678-8133 asap!

I hope you enjoy this series.  Thanks for reading!

Collage of Drew Brophy SC Art Fredrix Canvas Event Photos by Jonie PhotoI’m always traveling and doing art projects in other parts of the world.  I wanted to do something cool with my local community in San Clemente, with the idea of inspiring kids (young and old) to get creative, paint, and have fun with it.

I teamed up with Fredrix Canvas, SC Art Supply and Uni Posca for a “Paint with Drew” day, last Friday.

Fredrix Canvas makes the best quality and variety of canvas out there. They have all types for artists to be creative.  Their large canvas panels are perfect for my move-able mural paintings.   I paint on them with paint pens and spray paint; they always come out great.

Last September I painted 20 paintings in 20 days; they were all painted on Fredrix Canvas.

This year, I wanted to see what people can do with Fredrix’s new, awesome “black canvas”.  The black canvas works great with the bright colors I like to paint with.

Fredrix donated a generous supply of black canvas for the event, SC Art Supply hosted the event, and Uni Posca donated paint pens.

We invited the public to come out and paint, and they showed up in droves.

Some kids came and wouldn’t leave; they were having too much fun painting.  It was so cool for me to see their enthusiasm for art.

One teenager showed up with a painting he did on canvas, inspired by my style.

Local professional artist Lauren Tannehill showed up with her family, we saw San Clemente business owners and surfers and skaters and everything in between.

It was an awesome day!

Here’s a short photo slide show from the event (All photos shot by Jonie Photo):

A CELEBRATION OF SURF AND ART; WHAT DOES SURFING MEAN TO YOU!

Drew’s work as an artist takes him all over the world, partnering with communities to paint murals and create art inspired projects.

Now, Drew wants to combine the love for art, and San Clemente’s love of surfing, right here in his home town, during the Hurley Pro contest (the biggest, authentic surf event of the WCT)

Drew has put together a week-long celebration of Art & Surf for our community right here in San Clemente!

For 6 days, Drew will be painting a “movable mural”, 18 feet long, at different locations in town.  (2 of the locations have Brophy Poster Give-aways – See locations at bottom of this post)

 

MAKE AND TAKE:  The week will finish with an afternoon of “Painting with Drew” at San Clemente Art Supply Store.

It’s open to the public, and it’s free, thanks to the the generosity of Fredrix Canvas and SC Art Supply.  Bring your family and expose them to an afternoon of painting and creativity, for free!

This event coincides with the Hurley Pro surfing event, and the North Beach Art Walk.   On Friday, after you enjoy creating your own art, you can stroll the art walk.

During the week, Drew will be painting live and asking you to share “what is surfing” to you!  Your answer to that question is an entry into a drawing to win one of the Drew Brophy canvas art prints that will be given away on Friday, Sept 12, at SC Art Supply.

We hope you’ll join us, talk story, and tell us what surfing means to you!
