The universe is cool



When we got the last Surfrider Foundation mag in the mail, I immediately thought, "How beautiful is this cover?!" When Jay came home, I had my 'Maui Days' original framed and ready to ship to Corduroy. I held the mag next to my print and said, "Jay, see this Surfrider cover? It reminds me of 'Maui Days' and this is kind of how my brain sees things when I paint."

Later, I ripped off the cover of the mag and hung it in my studio for inspiration. Just a few weeks after that, I read on Ryan Tatar's blog that he was the photographer who shot it. That's just more proof that the universe is infinitely cool.

That's amazing! I love things like that, I'm happy you shared it! It makes me want to do some color studies in oil...which I've been meaning to do for some time now. Thanks for the inspiration!
