‘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 .

‘Moffat beach, Queensland’, painting on preloved surfboard
I had been given on an old surfboard before we went away by a friend who wanted to try putting it as an artwork on ebay. I had no time before we went away to start so it was a good project to get me back into painting now that we are home from our europe trip. I am happy with the result and may even see if the Seaview gallery up at Moffat Beach would be interested in displaying it for sale . It would also look good in the red room at ‘Sails on Suttons’ beach where Artists Afloat has a display of art so may end up there some time.
