“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.” – Henry David Thoreau quotes
ART: Palette knife
I used only a palette-knife for painting this. I didn’t use a brush.
Acrylic on canvas: 36 × 48 " (92 × 102 cm. )
This is a commission for Kara Kuryllowicz in Toronto, Canada. (Much bigger that the original)
An email from Kara on 20 Jan. 2012:… I OPENED IT AND I LOVE IT…
it’s in my room above my bed – will wake up to it Sat.!!!

I dedicate this painting to all the wonderful people all over the world who buy art from enthusiastic artists like me! And I thank God for the talent He gave me ;-)
I enjoyed every minute of it! It could be a wave at Ballito in South Africa….. ;-)
