I decided to do a painting for my sister, she is moving from Hermosa Beach back to good old San Pedro soon and I wanted to help her decorate her new place. I chose symbols that remind me of her and that I think she would like. I began with The Eye of The Tiger, she is an avid runner and the Rocky Theme is her inspiration, after watching the youtube video of Rocky practicing that morning in the first movie which she had on her YouTube channel it inspired me to paint this painting. Hawaiian flowers signify her love for Hawaii having been a resident there for 5 years during college. A surfer boy, surfer girll, the taurus sign and a butterfly which means Vanessa all had to fit into this unique and extraordinary piece of art. The last thing I did to this piece was place the Black Flag symbol up on the top left there, one of her favorite bands. I had done an acoustic guitar for my brother some time ago because that's his passion, but this one had to be extra special for my sister cause were girls and as a girl we don't just like one thing, we like many things. I introduce to the world, Vanessa's Painting.
