I want you to cry when you see this painting, and then I want you to heal.
This is an enormous wave at the point of breaking. I had just arrived at the North Shore of Oahu when I experienced my biggest life transformation yet. Just when I thought I couldn’t overcome my fears, life gave me the opportunity to face them. This is also the time that I started surfing at Alligator Rock.
The intensity of overcoming one of humanity’s biggest enemies: fear of facing the unknown of your inner self is what this painting represents. Each wave is a strong emotion, a force of nature. The decision you make in the moment shows you what you truly are.
