Heather Brown Releases Four New Limited Edition Giclees from the 2011 Wyland Gallery Haleiwa Surf Art Show

Good Morning from The North Shore of Oahu!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready to make it an even better week!
On Saturday, I officially release 4 new limited edition giclees to my collection at the Annual Surf Art Show held at the Wyland Gallery in Haleiwa on the North Shore of Oahu in the beautiful Hawaiian Islands.
Here is a peek at the new releases, please note that while they are now available for ordering, only the John Kelly Awards art giclees are available to ship by Christmas at this point. The other 3 will be about 4-5 weeks.

"Surf Stroll" is the latest release in the popular series started with "Surf Girl" 5 years ago. The original is available at The Wyland Gallery in Haleiwa.

"Surf Stroll" is the newest release in North Shore Oahu Surf Artist Heather Brown's iconic Surf Girl series

As some of you may know, I have been working with Rip Curl for about 4 years now, first as the Rip Curl Artist of the Search and since then as the artist behind the Rip Curl by Heather Brown line available at Rip Curl stores worldwide as well as surf shops, etc that sell Rip Curl products. This piece, the "Hawai'i Map" was created for use on different Rip Curl products for 2013. This was a really fun project because I can remember through the years always seeing these types of maps that artists created of Hawai'i, so it was fun to create on in my style. Hawai'i No Ka Oi!

"Hawai'i Map" by Hawaii Artist Heather Brown

Two pf my favorite pieces that I have created and released have been "Glassy Green" and "Juicy Sunset". For a few weeks prior to the Surf Art show at The Wyland Gallery, I had been experimenting with combining elements of the 2 pieces into 1 new piece, and one day this is what struck me as the one to release as it was a different color palette than I normally work with and I really feel that it captures that special time up here on The North Shore after many people leave the beach for the day and the ocean starts to clear and the sun is left to play alone in the ocean for the remaining minutes of the day.
The original for "Haleiwa Sunset" is sold, but giclees and Artist Proofs are still available.

"Haleiwa Sunset" New Limited Edition Giclee by Heather Brown

This is the piece that I created for the 2011 John Kelly Awards presented by The Surfrider Foundation.
The original is available at The Wyland Gallery in Haleiwa. I have been creating art for the Surfrider FOundation for a few years now and I get excited each year to create something new for this great event.
This piece was actually inspired by an earlier piece created by John Kelly's father, also John Kelly from the 1930's art that he had created for the shipping companies in the Islands.

Aloha Everyone!
It really is starting to feel like winter on the North Shore of Oahu, we were walking the bike path on Kaua'i a few short days ago in the hot sun and now it has been cold, rainy, windy and we have even had some great massive surf here to grace the Sunset Beach leg of the Van's Triple Crown of Surfing.
Last night we put up Christmas lights and our little tree (a Norfolk Pine that we have had in a pot for the past 3 Christmas's, and it keeps getting bigger and bigger! one day it will be a permanent Christmas tree in our yard) and as we were getting more into the Holiday spirit I decided that I was going to offer up the original art that I created for this years Christmas card up for sale with proceeds going to help families around the USA that are facing tough times this holiday season.
The original is a 8"x11" acrylic on water color paper and will come matted with a white matt board.

These are the "Characters" tees and they are water based silkscreened on super soft power washed 100% cotton tees. The tee's are sized casual unisex, so girls size down and men size up.

New Originals Now Available by Heather Brown

Aloha! Hope everyone is off to a great start for their weekend!

I just added two new originals to my website that are now available.

The first one is the original art for my new limited edition publication "Secret Falls" This is the first time I have published a waterfall piece and I think that I have only actually done maybe 3 other original waterfall pieces up to now. I really love how this one came out and the 10"x30" size is so great to really feel the movement of the water. The limited edition of 100 is already about 50% sold out on this piece and all of the hand highlighted artist proofs are sold out.

"Secret Falls" by Heather Brown. New Original and limited edition giclees are now available

The second original now available will also be published into limited edition giclees and artist proofs being released on December 10, 2011 at The Annual Surf Art show at The WYlland Gallery in Haleiwa.
As many of you probably know, I have been a long time supporter of The Surfrider Foundation and have worked with them on many great projects both on a local level in Hawai'i and other locales as well as on a National level. For the past 3 years I have created the poster art for the annual John Kelly Environmental Achievement Awards, one of my favorite events to support and attend here in Hawai'i.
This new original is the art created for the awards posters and booklets. I took inspiration on this piece from an original work of the late John Kelly's father, also John Kelly, who created a lot of the beautiful art for Matson and other cruise liners in the 40's and 50's in Hawai'i. I am really stoked on how it came out and it is a bit different than most of the subject matter I usually paint. The original acrylic on canvas in 18"x24".

North Shore Oahu Surf Artist, Heather Brown created this piece especially for the 2011 John Kelly Environmental Achievement Awards on December 10, 2011 at Waimea Valley Center

Fun in San Francisco with Heather Brown, Rip Curl, Green Day and Kelly Slater!


What a whirlwind week! Chris and I left here at 3:30 am on Tuesday to catch our flight to San Francisco and get in some of the action of day 1 of the Rip Curl "Somewhere in San Francisco" Search contest to watch some of the worlds best surfers compete for the first time in Northern California. As many of you know, I have been working with Rip Curl for about 4 years now so it was great to go out there and connect with my Rip Curl Family and enjoy a few days in the City by the Bay.

We arrived to absolutely beautiful weather, sunny, clear, warm and....waves! Some fun swell brought out some great competition as we watched day 1 and 2 down at the beach. We even were right there to watch Kelly Slater win his 11th world title (well kind of win, maybe in hi next heat, see ASP blunders) It was such an exciting day not only with the great surfers from around the world, but being there to see North Shore friends and locals Pancho Sullivan, John John Florence and Freddy P all doing there thing in San Fran!

The first night we were treated to a very cool surprise show put on by Surfrider Foundation and Rip Curl featuring Ty Segall, Kut U Up and very special surprise guests, Green Day!

The second day, the contest was on and conditions were perfect, we had a great perspective from the scaffolding and waters edge.

Kelly Slater after winning his heat and due to an ASP blunder, thinking that he just won the 2011 World Title, which will be his 11th! Sure he will clinch it in his next heat, congrats Kelly!!

Thursday they held the Grom Search and the weather was cold, rainy and windy!! With our thin blood from the Islands, we decided it was a work day, but in between, we checked out SF MOMA and a great gallery holding a really cool exhibition inspired by Wes Anderson's movies called "Bad Dads". The show will be up for a few more weeks at the Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco. I love Wes Anderson movies so much and Life Aquatic seems to be the only movie I could watch on repeat, so this was a must see show for me.

Then we walked a mile to get to the best pizza in the USA and hadthe award winning Coal Fired Margheritta Pizza at Tony's in North Beach! MMMMmmmmmm!

Then back on a plane and back home to finish up the work for my November 12, 2011 show at the Heather Brown Gallery in Tokyo! Time to paint! Mahalo and have a great weekend!
