Christmas Sale.......

I'm running an Xmas sale on my small framed Gauche paintings and my Giclee prints. Small Gauches originally priced @ $200 are 1/2 off until the end of 2008. Giclee prints (unframed) usually $95 are $50 till the end of 2008.

Anyone looking to get a custom sculpture or dashboard rider please contact me now b/f it's too late. These are time consuming little projects and I tend to get bogged down w/ them around the holidays. 

email me if interested...

DBR for Monk's buddy in Cali...

I told Monk I would make this for him about a month ago. I finally finished it.
The board is american cherry w/ a maple stringer. The base is black walnut, yellow heart, blood wood, and ash.

"Backside Five"


"Backside Five" is a large wall sculpture made from exotic hand glued woods, wire and found objects.
The board is mahogany, red oak and purple heart. The found objects are from the beach after a storm and are a piece of pier and a slice of a old tire.

Off the lip

This is an older sculpture that I thought everyone might like to see. The board is mahogany w/ a maple stringer and has a laminated fin of maple and mahogany. The surfer is riding a driftwood wave. 
I will make custom orders of this sculpture. The price for a custom sculpture starts at $150. Contact me by email if interested...

The Joker Dashboard Rider

This dashboard rider has a bump hip like a Jacobs 422, square nose of the G&S Stretch, and the huge concave of the Bing Nuuhiwa Noserider. The board is red oak and bloodwood w/ a mahogany base. The concave is carved super deep, but I can't seem to get a good picture of it.
This is a model making light of the never ending barrage of square nose models I keep seeing in shops form different shapers, ie- the Tyler Riddler, Bing Is Is, The Channin Square, P Arrow Olsen Square.
Not that all of the boards don't work well. But just give me an old G&S Stretch and I'll be happy.

Rocky Point mini sculpture

"Rocky Point" is a small wire sculpture on a jetty rock that I finished today. The board is American Cherry w/ a Maple stringer & yellow heart fin. It measures approx 5"H x 4"W x 6"Deep.
