Being a scuba diver and life long surfer, I have been fortunate enough to come into contact with these lovely mammals. From South Africa, to surfing down in Baja, to the great surf in Southern California, I always feel a touch of natures magic when in the water with these energetic and playful animals. Surfing on a wave with a dolphin at your side, is definitely a wildlife highlight of my life, and also a deep respect for nature and all its splendor. I wanted to show this in the techniques I used to paint this acrylic on canvas and bring forth the positive energy of its presence. It makes me feel happy and uplifted when I look at it. I hope it makes you feel the same.
