Wavefront Surf Shop

Here's a classic surf shop on Thompson. This is an 8"x 10 oil painting. This is my favorite surfshop to paint because it is an old building with an old van parked out back. The staff is friendly and is a stones throw from my digs. Mahalo

Pierpont Restaraunt

I painted this Mexican restaraunt early in the morning. It is in Pierpont, Ventura, California. Wish I would have moved the palm tree over a little bit. Met some cool locals while painting it.
