Brief Statement: When I saw the guidelines of the submissions I instantly thought to meld LA’s vibrant surf culture with Jordan’s vibrant wine; the flavors are bold and the adventure of drinking it can be as thrilling as when I’m surfing. My goal was to have a painting convey the sunny, energetic, free-spirited flavor of LA. I wanted the painting to capture the bold and clean personality of Jordan wine so I to paint this piece in style that would be unfussy, with clean lines, but, would still have a strong impact via vibrant colors. I decided to incorporate the surfer on wine as a symbol of the adventure drinking Jordan wine is, and how it’s an experience that can be as thrilling as surfing.
