This is from a beautiful photograph Dave took. (as most of his photographs are... exceptionally beautiful) I'm happy that he gave me permission to paint it, I enjoyed it so.

Thank you for sharing it with me, Dave. :)

I took an intermission between revisions and went to Surfside Beach for a week. :D

I think I'm finished, but I'm posting it unfinished temporarily in case Dave sees something he really doesn't like or someone else sees something glaringly wrong with it. These were so "sunny" and happy to look at that I really had fun painting them.

Thanks, y'all. Speaking of colors, I have to share this:

Wraith (Aug 17, 2007)
So where is the Surf board? All I see is a Hot lady on the beach. :P

Wow you really know how to surf? The closest I have been to surfing is Scurfing and Kneeboarding.
Anna (Aug 17, 2007)
Wow! I wish I had one like that!! lol
DeadlyBlondeArcher (edited Aug 17, 2007)
NOT very well, Wraith... I spend most of my time paddling back out to try again. :D The most fun I ever had doing it was during Emily...the waves were big and fast and powerful. Once you get on your feet it's not that difficult. It's kind of like riding a bicycle, if you get on and get your balance and it's moving fast enough, you just ride and keep balancing. Most days that week the ocean was like glass so I put my nieces on it... taught them how to leash up and carry it and paddle it out, and then we used it mostly for a big pink floatie. :) We had a blast doing that, anyway. I paddled way out on it one day and got to swim with a single dolphin for a while till some stupid jet skiers scared him off, but the water was so calm that I actually had to paddle back in, too. bummer.

I'll share it with you Anna..., it's 8'6" .... we can both fit on it. And there's a hurricane coming! I want to go back!

I know this is old, but for some reason I haven't seen this before and it's just so GORGEOUS. I'm in awe of the colors.
