Carlsbad local artist Patrick Sattley is another first-time donor to Surfrider San Diego’s annual art gala, bringing us ‘Rising Swell,’ this mesmerizing original landscape oil painting on stretched canvas.

Describing his passion for the ocean and surfing as a “borderline obsession,” Sattley says no matter what his original subject matter starts out as, the finished product always ends up a wave. Sattley’s wave paintings capture the diverse angles and perspectives surfers are inspired by.

‘Rising Swell’ measures 31.5″ X 22.25.” For more information on Sattley, visit
