Sunrise was inspired by a trip Drew took to South Africa in 2006.
Drew explains the inspiration behind the painting: "I have a strong memory of the moment this painting was inspired: On the beautiful beach of Jeffery’s Bay, where the ocean is full of life and waves seem to peel forever, I was inspired to paint the sunrise. One morning before dawn, after the coldest night of the year, I awoke to be the first to ride one of these magical waves. Standing in the dark, shivering in my wet-suit, I used my surfboard to block the icy winds. The crashing waves kept me company but I could not see them in the darkness. Above me, millions of stars illustrated the vastness of the universe.
As my mind began to wander, I felt cold and alone, as if I was nowhere in time or space, just another soul or spec of light in the night sky so far from each other.
Finally a tiny faint glow in the distance caught my eye, it steadily grew larger with every second and in a sudden burst, a tremendous wave of light raced across the sky. In a fraction of second it erased the darkness and the millions of stars. I instantly felt the warmth of the light as the wave illuminated me. I embraced it and basked in it, it felt like God’s warm hands on my face.
I was no longer alone, a new day had been born, the endless waves and our beautiful world came into view. This is our true gift, every single day."

I instantly fell in love with the colors and spirit of this piece. It fits extremely well into my collection of surf and Hawaiian inspired art. It brings inspiration, life, and light into the room and I can't help looking at it. Thank you Drew for sharing a piece of you with us! Mahalo!
Classic Piece of Art

I know this isn't that old, but this Sunrise painting by Drew has become a classic for my family. We first saw it printed in a book, and my wife just had to have the art.
We ordered and it arrived about 2 weeks later. Looks beautiful in our rec-room!
Everyone thinks this is an original piece of art!

I bought this for my living room - had it framed nicely. The quality of the canvas is so good, and Drew's original signature is on it, that my friends all think I bought an original Drew Brophy! I love it.
