Surf Art- Paintings by Rick Romano

Rick Romano is a Virginia Beach artist who has made a living drawing and painting in the saltwater environment he's grown up with. An avid windsurfer and surfer for over twenty years, Rick is forever inspired by the timeless beauty and power of the sea. His unique style colorfully reflects his passion for the ocean worldwide. In his earlier years, many of his works were of coastal landmarks such as old beach cottages, lighthouses and popular beach locations.

 Today with the growing demand for tropical and surf-related themes, Rick is devoting his studio time for exactly these themes. Rick quotes, " For most of my early years I drew surfers and waves, with palmtree beaches. Now that it's in demand, I get to return back to a childhood dream and paint surfing for the fun of it."

"Way Outer Reef" by Rick Romano

Each individual Limited Edition that gets matted, is then hand-painted with various colors washes, highlights and heavy brush paint applications right on the mat and print it itself. Each print is done this way and no two are exactly alike. this allows the collector to own an original in a very limited edition, at a third of the cost.
Although Rick Romano editions are produced with the highest quality inks and material available, utmost care should be placed upon hanging of artwork. Always avoid hanging art in direct or indirect sunlight.
