Well you fast forward 2222222222222222-2000 I was driving alone in my 1971 mach 1 metelic blue mustang with A four on the floor hurst shifter and a 351c four barrel under the hood. A set a tires and a clutch and a six year ride it was time for a change and I sold the girl to a 26yrs old kid and his girlfriend with a 1999 moder mustang. I took the kid on a red line ride i looked over and he was hanging on the the seat like he just soiled his pants. By the time we got back he counted the cash three time and looked me in the eye and says is ther anything els i should know about the car.------ I thought and all i could say was kid dont ever race your girlfriend if you want to keep her. Now i thought I

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.

Balance through Breathing

As hard as it is to believe one can let go of more negative thoughts and energy by simply breathing. From surfing to jogging to mountain biking you name it, breathing is key. This is very simple and will change everything if you practice this until it becomes a natural part of your life.
Most people breath through there mouth, watch people and you will see. The body gets more oxygen through the nose period. The key is taking three inhales through the nose and blowing the air out of the mouth. So next time your exercising or your stressed out take a break and breath. Stay tuned the surfboard gallery is getting all set up inside and the guard dogs are on duty.
