This is the first surfer I painted while in Hawaii. I was on the beach at the North Shore and before I could even sit down in the sand I noticed a huge turtle swimming in the surf. He had about 7 or 8 friends and they all seemed to be enjoying the calm waters of North Shore along with the boogieboarders and surfers. I hope you like this series of paintings. It is the beginning of "a painting a day". I had a crush on a surfer once and I don't think I ever got over it.
