I was painting this on the side of the road, see me at work, when I was into the third day of a heart attack that I denied having for 5 days. I'm putting this down because it is a very important part of my life and my art. Also, perhaps it will help some other macho idiots be smarter. It was the second painting I signed after my open heart surgery. I was 73 and suddenly I felt better than I had in years. Falling more and more in love with my work was a blessing as well. The energy of the surf reflects how I was feeling.
All of my work comes framed with hand made 1 X 2" redwood. There are two reasons I frame my work; One: Your painting is ready to hang and enjoy upon arrival; Two: It acts as protection during shipping.
