Wipe Out!

Your in the tube . . . but it's wiped out!

3' x 5' oil on canvas: Wiped out!


I painted this quite awhile back. You’re in the tube in a giant wave. There’s no escape, you want to ride this one to the pier. . .  or not!  Below is a picture of me when I was the capitan of the Laid Back Surf team in Big Sur. I’m a lot younger then. Here’s me waving to you from quite a few years back. How you doing?

Check out the waves!


Anyway, I was painting the above picture . . .  the perfect tube. It was almost done after several many coats of oil and it  looked pretty good. . . added a few touches of white and dropped the bucket of paint. The wave closed out! You’ve got to expect that when you’re in the tube.
