Ready to Hang
While living in Hawaii, I was amazed at the athleticism and pure adrenal energy these crazy guys had, attacking waves that were 20 plus feet tall. I was never a surfer myself, but living in Hawaii, you assimilate to the local culture and make pieces that the community can get excited about.
My name is Jeff Rach. I am a practicing self taught artist. My interests are varied and I think of that as a positive trait since I'm very inexperienced. I try not to pigeon-hole myself into any subject or style. With no training or experience aside from painting the walls of our house, I feel I've been blessed with a gift. I'm finding that the less I try, the better the piece turns out. Once I start overthinking and playing with the paint too much, it's impossible to get back to the initial strength of the first strokes of the brush. I love to mix colors on the canvas/brush, allowing for surprises to happen.
