Swimming hard to hit the wave just before it breaks. Feel the current pull your body over the crest and then lift it like a bubble carrying it shoreward until it becomes nothing but foam. This type of surfing is my California Dream. This is mixed media watercolor and ink on paper.

When viewing a group of musicians or listening to music the musicians blend into their instruments for me and they sing as one.
In all of my work I have a fondness for bold color, clear values and wild texture.
My imagination works overtime. I hope you enjoy viewing my work.

  • Hi Sally, I’m sorry, I missed your comment. Thanks for your interest. I can’t think of anything more fun than riding waves unless maybe it’s skiing in powder. Thanks again for commenting

    Oh wow, I been looking at the collection boxes and you are so full full of creation Sally!! I am in awe of the different subject matter you have explored. I like this one for the lightness it exudes and the capacity of power she possesses.

  • Actually, Lina ,this the one activity I prefer over everything else except, possibly, skiing in dry powder snow. The power of the surf is awesome and floating to shore riding high on the foam is a feeling like none other. The rides, unfortunately are too short, and I, unfortunately, am growing too old. Cest la vie! Sally
