13th Painting


You might notice I've skipped number 12. I didn't like the end result which was kind of a reflection of my connection with the painting through it's progress. It's all a learning process though so it's all good. I'm finding myself getting addicted to painting, I think this one is my best so far....and I've been commissioned to do paintings for someone for real money....woohoo!, not that I'm charging much but it's still nice. Cheers, Alex.

i like the colors on this one. i've always admired anyone who can really commit to painting. it seems like it would require a lot of patience and endurance to go through an entire canvas.
good work!

This painting actually strikes a chord with me. I was in Ixtapa, Mexico at a Clud Med and was boogy boarding on a beach on which average swimmers should not have been. The waves were way too high for me, and I got tossed, and became disoriented. This scene reminds me of that feeling. Shortly thereafter, in roughly 1985or so, there was a huge earthquake nearby, and when I returned to Ixtapa a couple of months later, I was told that the water had retreated from the shore / beach, washed out to sea, and then returned with a tremendous fury. Although I was not there for the earthquake, that image of the water rushing back in, in conjunction with my personal tossing shortly before, always made me respect huge waves. Nice work.
