tides draws inspiration from the california surf scene as well as osburn’s personal passion for the craft of painting. “[surfing] is similar to painting in the sense that you want to draw different lines with a good sense of variety. surfing and the surf culture of california has definitely helped me develop my own style and my artistic eye,” says osburn.
