Lets Create Waves and Save Trestles!

If you have not heard by now, there is a detailed plan to expand the 241 toll road to San Onofre, CA. This would dramatically affect the surf break and the natural land environment. The toll road would create a natural barrier preventing the sand from naturally replenishing the beach, thus deteriorating the quality of surf.

Protesting the toll road is not about only about helping to protect our environment, it is also about preserving history. San Onofre, CA is home to Trestles, an iconic surf break. Trestles is the only US mainland's destination on the ASP World Surfing Championship's tour. It is also a favorite surfing location to several Southern California residents. Additionally, the land near Trestles is one of the last undeveloped natural landmasses in Southern Orange County, CA.

In 1966, Dana Point constructed a harbor that destroyed Killer Dana, a legendary and epic surf break. We now have a chance to not repeat history and preserve an icon in Southern California culture. Lets protect one of the remaining natural landmarks for today and for the future. Lets save Trestles!

The Color of Light

January Screen Savers

"What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity."
-H. Matisse


Happy New Year! I am excited to start 2008 and share my artwork with you.

This month’s screen savers feature the picturesque qualities of Oahu’s North Shore. The first three images depict Pipeline’s epic and intense characteristics. Hawaii’s surfing conditions can dramatically change overnight, creating enormous waves. The second image depicts a surfer capturing a “ride-of-a-lifetime,” while the third image illustrates the difficulty of challenging nature’s fury.

The fourth image is an artistic interpretation of V-Lands, a beach close to the location of ABC’s Lost. The abnormal colors juxtaposed with the palms trees represent the tranquil spirit of Hawaii.

I am also announcing a new series that I am currently developing. It is a surrealistic series that combines figurative elements with my original photography. The preview image depicts an ambiguous face drawn over a man’s torso (relax the eyes to allow the body’s chest appear). The series is currently being developed and I am really excited about its possibilities.

I hope that you enjoy this month’s work and I look forward to sharing new artwork next month.

Enjoy!
