I absolutely love it! The waves / water being personified as a bird is so original and true. I can see the movements of the birds in flight match with the waves. Having the rider so small shows how vast nature is compared to one man . I can almost feel the surfers emotions, how exhilarating and terrifying it would be to face the immense beast made of water. The coloring is breathtaking. The brush work and splatter of paint shows talent. I may not be the best judge of art but this is something I would love to have framed in my home.
