Airbrush waves: Some years ago I was living in Hawaii, surfing a lot and I would create the occasional freehand airbrush painting featuring a wave. Not just any old wave but a perfect, hollow surfer's dream wave. These became quite popular and I began getting commissions for ever larger works, some measuring ten feet or more. I rarely do these anymore, but here is a selection from back in the day.

Panoramic waves: This collection of wavescapes in oil are generally three or more times longer than they are high. This panoramic aspect ratio deviates a bit from your typical painting and tends to lend itself nicely to the wave image. It allows me as a painter to focus wholly on the waves without the distractions of rocks, beach and sky. Another plus is that people often have in their homes or offices interesting wall spaces on which these paintings can be displayed to great effect. Most are large pieces, often 20" x 60" or so.
