I started surfing in 1966 so it’s fair to say I’ve been in love with waves for literally 50 years. The photographs I used to paint this oil were taken on a beautiful January day with a large swell running. As I rounded the corner and caught sight of the ocean my jaw dropped and I immediately pulled over to just drink it all in. I utilized a telephoto lens to pull my subject in from a distance and later worked in the studio trying to capture the power of the breaker, and beauty of the spindrift created by the offshore wind.
