On February 12th I drove down Highway 1 (heading to my studio) and had to pull off the road at Surfers Beach to watch the sunrise light up the coastal clouds.  The night before had brought some big winds along the coast, and these clouds were the last remnants...  As I watched a few seasoned surfers catch the waves, I decided to begin painting this lovely scene at my studio that very day.  Another glorious sunrise on the coast!
