Wanderlust, 5x7” Watercolor on Paper


Every wave is different, and every surf break is different. So there’s never a shortage of waves or parts of the ocean that surfers want to visit. Spain holds a special place in my heart, from the time I lived in Madrid ten years ago. I couldn’t imagine then that I would have any interest in surfing in the Basque Country. But even just witnessing the beauty of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe would be a gift.

This painting was inspired by a surf photographer I follow - Jon Aspuru (@jonbakio). I’m not that good of a surfer, so I wouldn’t be able to handle most of the waves he photographs. But his photos and videos do give me wanderlust.

$10 for shipping and handling will be added at checkout. If the delivery address is based outside of the U.S., additional shipping charges may apply.
