The title “Tombstone” is a term used by surfers that refers to the predicament a surfer gets into after he wipes out and gets stuck underwater. When a surfer gets plunged really deep their leash pulls so taught that it causes the surfboard to stick out above the surface resembling a tombstone. The longer the tombstone is up, the greater the danger the surfer is in. This piece shows how real things can get below the surface.

Tombstone is painted with acrylic, ink, and enamel on a birch panel.  The painting measures  11″ x 14″

Original Day of the Dead Surf Art Painting 

Tombstone is an original Day of the Dead Surf Art piece that was made with many layers of acrylic paint.  It was then enhanced with an iridescent acrylic ink to make the water more vibrant.  New the foreground is enhanced with an enamel outline which helps separate the form and ground a technique commonly found in animation cells.  This painting depicts a surfer being attacked by an underwater kraken or octopus and is causing him to Tombstone.  Tombstone is a term that surfers use that refers to a surfboard resembling a tombstone in a graveyard where it just sticks straight up out of the water because the leash is being pulled downward so hard.  This is a great pice for any surfer out there who would love to add a Day of the Dead surf art piece to their collection!
