Surfing History: Tom Blake's Fin

Giving my abstract paintings a title is a fun task.  I never name them before. I wait until it's finished.
The top right image had a 'fin' shape revealing itself so I Googled 'fin' and then I ended
up on 'surfboard fin' - which led me to the history of these fins. Imagie that!

To my delight a man named Tom Blake invented the fin 
in 1935 in Waikiki, Hawaii.
Hence the title of the top right abstract painting.

You learn something new every day!

Please visit my shop to find out what I named the other 3.
