Time Line from shaping into painting

This is a short story of how the new surfboard gallery has come to life once again.
In 2000 I got into the retail end of surfboards with my own store call San Clemente Surfboard that I  won at a raffle at Toyota of orange. Three and half years into having the store I was really getting into my art and wanted to expand the store and take over the whole building or move to a new location. Well this termite guy couldn't make up his mind if he was coming or going and this went on for about two months. during that time I was presented with the opportunity to move to the main drag down town on Del mar street. I went with what felt right and it all came together.  I was in the gallery for six months and it was a story in itself.   From the gallery I was in the very first art walk for SC on Del mar street with about a couple of dozen other artist.  I also started particapting in the once a month art fair which Ive only missed three going into my filth year now.  For the next four years i focused on the art fair and the annual art fair as well to the present date.  Every year something new came about with my art from working with KSBR to being published in two different books one called Spanish village by the sea and the other call surfboards.  All I can say is only focus on what you want and if it feels good do it.
