A few years ago my grandson Nic was here for a visit. We went to Cocoa Beach and he took a few surfing lessons. It was a great day for surfing. A storm front was moving in so there were waves and clouds and it felt a lot wilder than it really was. To an eleven year old it was the pipeline off the North Shore of Hawaii.
I always loved the photo I took of him when he finally got up and "rode a wave" into shore so I decided to do a painting that would show him in action.
