I got the idea for this piece from a portrait of my mom when she was in her 20’s. It is a picture I have always had pinned to the wall in my studio and love because of her goofy smirk and how content she looks. The green board represents my Dad and there is a little note at the opposite end of the sea wall that reads, “ I’ll send you with millions of kisses”. This piece is about the love we have for our partners and their passions, which we support them in. When the surf is big, the man, or woman, must understand, the surfer must go!
