I bought an interesting and fun painting from a picker recently. Although I have not torn the backing paper off and don't know if it is actually titled, I call it "Surfing Wahines."
It is painted by longtime San Diego surf artist Norm Daniels.
It is in a really nice frame and the canvas is 24 x 30".
Would be perfect in the home of a surfer or a bar or tiki lounge or any homescape that doesn't take itself too seriously.
I must confess to not knowing much about the artist, his website is no longer operational but he does have an instagram page.
I do know that he was a devotee of my late friend Rick Griffin. It sort of reminds me of my friend Brett Stokes's work, too. And a bit of Alex Niño.
Here is a bio from a gallery that represents him.
I also corresponded with a Hawaiian gallery that represents him.
Here is a cool interview with him in Surfd Magazine.
I like this Griffinesque painting he did in the article, Crowd Control.
The guy is a really good artist.
My painting is for sale for a not exorbitant sum if you want it.
