Capturing the essence of the Coast: Susan Wickstrand

Thank you Jim Moriarty (CEO of Surfrider Foundation) for Posting the following on your Blog, Ocean, Waves, Beaches:

When I think of our oceans, waves and beaches my mind still... thank God... goes to thinking of all the joy I receive from them (as opposed to defaulting to the myriad of challenges they have).

It's because of that category, the joy category, that images like the one above connect with me. This is Robert Rauschenberg meets Paul Gauguin (with a dash of Gerry Lopez).

The work is by Susan Wickstrand, San Diego artist. I love it. More of her work here.
