Maui Chris

- by Melanie Pruitt

This week's theme: Let's Go To The Beach

We are drawn to the places where sand, water and sky meet.The sounds are different. The ground underfoot is different. The smells, the air - it's all different. At first we were drawn to the beach because of the abundance of food. Now it's not just for food that we go. We go to the beach to play and relax. The beach is a place to gather with others and to find solitude. It doesn't matter where it is. It doesn't matter what the season or what the weather - we will always be drawn to the beach.

Art: Maui Chris by Artist Melanie Pruitt
I've always loved the beach and of course, The Beach Boys! So I'm entering this months exhibit with this painting I did for my son for Christmas. This is him surfing. 

I've surfed a couple waves in my life, and now, after living in Maui a couple years, it's taken a hold of my son's heart. When you catch a wave, you really are sitting on top of the world!

This painting illustrates the lyrics of the Beach Boys song, "Catch a Wave".

"Catch a wave and you're sitting on top of the world

Don't be afraid to try the greatest sport around
Everybody tries it once
Those who don't just have to put it down
You paddle out turn around and raise
And baby that's all there is to the coastline craze
You gotta catch a wave and you're sittin' on top of the world"
