I Have My Storms

“I Have My Storms”, 6″x4″, Pen & ink with gold acrylic detail, 2014

Commissioned by my friend and surf buddy, Nicole. 🙂

I’ve become accustomed to my big, wood panels, that I had a mini-heart attack when I realised just how small an area I was working with. I enjoyed working on this so much though, that I finished this in one sitting.

The title (and to some extent, the piece itself) is inspired by an excerpt of one of Vincent Van Gogh’s letters to his brother, Theo:

“The heart of man is very much like the sea, it has its storms, its tides and its depths; it has its pearls too.”
