“painting the surf en plein air while the sun is rising and the light is changing is the ultimate challenge. As one of the few people in the world who can do it I love it when it comes out like this. Makes a truely unique work of art, never seen before or since. You can not repeat all the possible variations of surf, tide, light, atmosphere and experience of the artist. Makes it truly original and rare and that is what make REAL art collectible.”
