Impermanence and equanimity, is the goal.
However, in the mean time, I’d like to do some stuff.
I am an artist.
I studied figure painting at UNF and earned a B.F.A. After receiving my degree, I chose to surf and surf and surf some more. I moved to Costa Rica, for the waves, not realizing that painting proved logistically impossible.
I’ve always carried a camera and surf photography just naturally evolved as my primary source of creativity.
Art is communication. We see a visual image and we relate on a common level, because of the human experience. People that have never been to the beach love images of surfing. Look what happened after the movie, The Endless Summer. Once land locked teenagers, rode the wave of surf culture, to California, Hawaii, Austrailia, Africa, Mexico . They’re still riding that wave.
Such is art.
Here are some shots of local Fernandina Beach surfers.
