Aloha Surfer - Inspiration can come from anywhere...

(Please click the image to enlarge)

I didn't posted new paintings for a long time.  There were a couple paintings, but they didn't come out the way I expected.  Still I have many ideas I'd like to try.  Why the result wasn't come out the way I want...

In March, an old friend introduced her friend to me online because the new friend is coming with her American husband, their daughter and a dog to settle down in Miami, Florida soon.

Instantly, we found a major common that we both love art.  She started learning drawing many years ago too.  I saw she posted many beautiful photo-realistic drawings online.  Simply, I started to imagine how she would like the life style in Miami since she is Chinese from Shanghai, one of the biggest city in China.

Then, I saw her post that she ran six kilometers one day.  What?  I am not a sporty person, to me it is impossible.  She told me that she was runner, used to win a couple of competitions when she was younger.  Also, she planed to join the marathon team after settling down in Miami...

This time a very clear picture in my mind, she could be a female surfer, walking on the beach, with her happy dog, likes many I saw in Hawaii... That was my inspiration of this painting, and the title.
