The experience of being in the water, as the sun is just peering over the ridge, never ceases to fill me with awe. It is just one of the reasons I love dawn patrol, the experience of getting up to surf before sunrise. To make this painting personal, and because I wanted a new "board" portrait, decided to add my beloved Mystic with the orange nose to the photo.. My last board portrait, "Mystic" sold, but it is now only a back up board. Can't imagine anyone wanting this one, as personal as it is.. Unless you can relate to this experience, it could be a giant pencil!

Because "dawn Patrol" drove me a little bit crazy, I decided to get simple with the untitled painting above. Still the slick morning look of a wave approaching as I sit on my board, but a foggy morning.. It is painted on stainless steel, which complements the piece as well as being really smooth to paint on.. I really liked the simplicity of focusing on such a simple detail...
