Love's like that. Every thing seems calm, then BAM! you're it. Nothing you can do but take a deep breath and hope you don't get the wind knocked out of you.
Sure, it can be dangerous, but people have been wading right back in for as long as time itself.
This Ode to the Big Wave Theory of Love is painted on all panels, with fine French acrylics over a diminutive 4 by 4 inch stretched gallery wrap canvas by local Santa Cruz artguy Vern Scharf. It's coated with layers of acrylic varnish so it's portable art that can travel anywhere, set on a shelf, or hang tiny nail.
