Tropical Rush (11x14 Oil on canvas panel) [Ref Photo]

I found this surf shop on the north shore of Oahu at 62 Kamehameha Hwy, Haleiwa. This image was cut in thirds by two trees trunks. Also there were several benches which complicated the composition. I wanted this painting to be about the surf boards so those distractions were removed. To get the design of the long board on the far right I had to step up one click on the Google Map to see this board. As usual I am not quite finished with this one, and think there needs to be a little more work on the slab and gravel.
