I got invited to do 3 huge paintings for Whole Foods Market in the Huntington beach mall of Bella Terra.
It's Whole Food's 300 store.
Beside that, I had the idea to paint the logo on a retro surfboard shaped by the local surf shaper
Jeff "Doc" Lausch from Surf Prescriptions surfboards!

Big thank you to Paul Geary !
I treated my self with two brand new Wayland brushes, a wireless mouse, a cutting mat.... three 6ft by 7ft wooden panels....2 pounds of Kona Hezelnut Coffee and a month of sleepless weekends!
The starting point is always a challenge and the most important time for me when i do a new painting.
it's like a wave, you take off and Go!!
A few step by steps on the first painting.
All photos taken by my lovely fience Ashley ;)
Thanks babe !
This Pelican painting, was the biggest size I've ever done so far, 6fft/7ft and heavy enough to break your back !
In between this project
, I got asked to paint on a surfboard by Paul from Whole foods market, for the Opening of their 300th store in Huntington beach shopping mall Bella Terra.
Sick!! I love that!
Painting on a generic short board shape makes it look ok.
for that matter I got in touch with the local Huntington beach shaper
Jeff "Doc" Laush from Surf prescriptions , to create a master piece , a Retro board.
Old school boards are insane , they flow and I love painting on a shape like that.
this board can be seen in the new Whole Foods Market in the shopping mall of Bella Terra.
