A high-quality reproduction based on Dave Hobrecht's original charcoal and pastel painting, called "Tree. This was the painting that started it all for Hobrecht. Hobrecht spent much of his youth riding the waves of his hometown Huntington Beach, California, also known as, Surf City USA. Later, Hobrecht started his professional art career as Editorial Cartoonist for Surfer Magazine. While on staff at the magazine, Hobrecht created his first painting Tree depicting world-famous surf spot, Kirra. Upon seeing his work, the highly-respected, Surfers Journal offered Hobrecht a two-page spread in an issue featuring surf art. Shortly after, a woman called to purchase the painting, something that had previously been foreign to Hobrecht. He sold his first piece and began painting more. Hobrecht says, if it wasn't for that painting, Tree, the others would most likely not have followed. Available in Black or Grey.
