I’ve always loved Texas beaches. Growing up near the Texas gulf coast, I spent a lot of time in Galveston or at Surfside with my friends on the weekends. I like the timelessness of it, watching the surf rolling in and out, the sound of the waves and the motion of the seagulls in the constant breezes. I like the sunrises and the sunsets reflecting over the water. Painting boats is a lot like painting buildings, but the reflections on the water make them very interesting. I sometimes wonder what it would be like to live in Port Aransas and watch the sunrise every morning.
