Surfing Painting

Waiting for a Wave

‘Waiting for a Wave’, acrylic, 30x30cm

I don’t surf but my daughter does and I do know that she spends a deal of time waiting for the right wave. She get in position and sits with the other board riders and watches the coming waves to see if there is one just right for her and hopes to get  the perfect ride. This little painting  is for all those who love surfing .


Sandcastles, Boogie boards and Beach umbrellas

‘Sandcastles, Boogie boards and Beach Umbrellas’, acrylic, 30x30cm

Its Christmas and New Year and with it each year brings family time at the beach. there is fun to be had with the boogie boards in the surf. the kids build sandcastles on the shore and the umbrellas keep us all from getting sunburnt. Precious times and great memories are made as we celebrate together and prepare for the coming year.


Moreton Island

‘Moreton Island’, acrylic, 60x120cm

This paintings brings back some wonderful camping memories .We would camp at Blue Lagoon, fish on the beach , cook over campfires , drive up to this lighthouse and walk along the cliffs looking down at the huge rays in the water below. Moreton is so close to Brisbane city and yet you feel a million miles away…just you , the ocean and its Creator !


Beach Day Series

‘Beach Day with Sails’,acrylic, 30x30cm
