Paradise dream-painting by Paul Carter

 This was a fun creative journey and original freehand art piece.   

Using my shortboard templates and dimensions, this is a replica shortboard art piece cut out of a 4x8 sheet of quarter inch plywood.

This was inspired from my travels to beautiful places around the planet.   

It is so important to create without comparing yourself to anyone and looking for that validation.

There is a freedom that evolves from learning by doing and staying consistent with the creativity over time.

Thank you JH for your support and the new home for this one of kind piece.   

I also like to thank each and everyone for your positive support on this journey with surfboards and art.   

I am excited to embrace my art journey much more this 2022.   Commission work is available along with Prints for your home or business.

Keep the creative fire stoked and always focus on the good.  

Breathe and believe

Western and native art by Paul Carter art

I enjoy the outdoors and I periodically think about the old west the old frontier that all the men and women and children that made the journey west. 

Some to find gold and silver some to start a new life completely.

So many reasons so many inspired for adventure to find a wife a husband even a tribe to learn from.

I am so grateful and thankful to each of them all the my ancestors and family and friends that paved the way for my own life.
The Wild West art by Pail Carter
I have so much respect for the Native American Indians and the life and lifestyle they have lived  and continue throughout the United States.  

There is so much history and roots in SoCal that I have been so interested in and exploring.

To explore and experience a true Native American sweat lodge for over 3 years now has been an amazing journey.

Letting go of old conditioned negative thoughts and words is an amazing freedom from the negative codependencies on might have.

 Keep the fire stoked with positive creativity and keep exploring.

Waves are empowering on many levels from the power and the energy it is learned by experiencing them.
