"Waves is one of the few paintings that is not sourced from one of my own photos. The photograph for this painting was taken by my friend, Will Taylor, who is a long-distance endurance paddle boarder. He took this painting's source photo more than a mile off the coast of Southern California on one of his training sessions. I was simultaneously enchanted by the beauty of the location and also frightened by the sense of deep water, which gives me a sense of vertigo. The sublime quality of this place (and of Will's image) were irresistible to my interests as a painter and as a long distance runner." - Matthew Mullins
