“My Life Depends On It”

acrylic on canvas,  42×42″,  2017

Painted in collaboration with Solo Scott by Ruth Chase. The painting reflects the wisdom Solo has as a result of growing up in Venice, CA. This painting is part of the West of Lincoln Project. The look and feel of this painting came from working directly with Solo as a collaboration that would celebrate Solo’s life and his connection to Venice. Solo’s biography will be exhibited with the painting in August 2017 at Venice Arts.
Art about people
Solo Scott by Ruth Chase 2400 copy

Born 1965, grew up on Paloma Court in Venice, CA.

Fight for your passion like your life depends on it, because it literally does. Growing up in Venice made me who I am and afforded me a lot of opportunity. At the age of seven, I got a surfboard for Christmas and I was off and running, obsessed, and became passionate about surfing from then on. That art, or talent, kept me sane amidst all the insanity.

– Solo Scott

This 2 min. audio was recorded in September 2016. “My Life Depends On It” by Ruth Chase was a direct result of this interview and the wisdom that Solo has as a result of growing up in Venice.
