Created for a couple I admire and love dearly. I am privileged enough to teach art to one of their children, who is a supremely fascinating young man. In the paddle boarder riding the wave, so full of power and beauty I see the symbiosis of their marriage – each at once both powerful, strong, resilient, determined, disciplined, wild and free. For me this was the perfect painting for them, I was absolutely thrilled when they liked it enough to hang it in their house.
I hope to create another which represents not only them but their children and extended family whom I have come to love very much, as well. Even though they live on tother side of Canada. (I hear it snows there quite a bit … )
