The Power WIthin Buddha Painting by (c)  Drew Brophy Nov 2013

This painting is the forth of twenty commissions that I am committed to getting finished in the next week!

The 20 commissioned paintings that I have to paint, follow on the heels of a very successful promotion, called the “20×20” that I did last month, where I committed to painting 20 paintings in 20 days.

During the “20 paintings in 20 days” all but one of those twenty paintings sold the day I painted them.  I was surprised to find that so many people out there were fascinated by the process of starting and finishing a painting every day, for 20 consecutive days.

It was a difficult commitment, to do that many paintings that fast.  But I learned a lot about myself in the process.

This painting is called THE POWER WITHIN – it’s sized 11″ x 14″ Paint Pens on Canvas Board.

It’s for a collector named Cathy P. who lives in Ohio.  Cathy wanted a painting that was “zen-like” and that incorporated Buddha and waves.Drew Brophy Meditation Art Painting the Buddha commission POWER WITHIN

I added the all-seeing eyes and rainbow energy bolts.   This depicts that power that we all have within ourselves to find peace and joy and to tap into the vibrations that we were meant to get in tune with.

I hope Cathy loves her painting.

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.

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 the 5th of 20, titled THE PIER,  11″ x 14″ on Canvas board, medium Uni Posca Paint Pens.

It’s Saturday, and I thought I’d go down to the pier in San Clemente to paint today’s painting.  I sat under the palapa on the beach and painted while friends came by to watch and say hello.

Today reminded me of a fall day.  The weather is changing and it made me think of the North West swells that will soon begin to filter in.  That’s when San Clemente pier really lights up; the right going into the pier turns into a big tube while the current pushes you away.  I can’t wait for those days to start!

Within 5 minutes of posting a photo of this painting in progress on Facebook, we got an email from Maria’s friend Kat.  She bought it before it was even finished.  That’s having faith in the process.

Please, leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this painting.

Life is good,
