"SURRENDER" revisited


Ahhh, now that's just right. I have liked this painting since creating it and it did not take a lot of revision. However the cloud/sky  photo that I was using as reference was in a much more grey tonal mode. It felt as though the boy might be surrendering to a storm...that was not my intention. It is the surrender of the day, one's trials, one's choices to the sand, sky and sea to be washed clear in meditation.

Giving the background sky a bright day color of blue sets it apart I think. There is a bit more color overall in this version and more depth.

This painting is 12 x 16 inches and is framed in white board 1 inch thick by 4 inches wide. It is oil on canvas and is available for purchase to add to your collection. The price is $1,200.00 USF plus shipping. If you are interested you can contact me, Alan at

More to come....
