My dad was a water person. This love has flowed into me through him, a lifelong gift. Decades ago I made this work in pastel chalk for him. Even though he was a windsurfer like me, and not a wave surfer, it was always in plain sight in his room. For water people, the energy of the waves is the ultimate connector to life itself.
This year Dad passed away, and the surfer is back with me. Thinking about the power of this dream vision, the wave, the water, the energy, the connection, I suddenly realized that I wanted to make it available as an art print. To share it with more people in all its simplicity. My art has always been about this. We are one with the ocean.
The high printquality on giglee hanemuller paper brings out the colors and magic of the pastel chalk perfectly.
