Surf's Up, Face of Malibu, Sitter 29.

Surfboard collector John Mazza is my latest Face of Malibu sitter. He knows Malibu like the back of his hand starting a surfboard museum at Pepperdine University and sitting on many organizational boards.

The single life sitting was a good one and the conversation flowed. We covered a lot of Malibu topics as my brush painted his face. Plus he has a really interesting face to paint and I loved the shapes in his hair. The Face of Malibu is my ongoing portrait painting series kindly featured monthly in The Malibu Times. It is the second town I have painted, the first being The Face of Ventura, appearing for two years in The Ventura Breeze, and now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Ventura County.
