This seascape was painted on a deserted beach along the Shinnecock Bay. It captures the laid-back vibes of a lazy summer day spent lounging in the sun. You can almost feel the sand between your toes and smell the sea salt as you gaze upon a beached sailboat. Perhaps you pulled it up on the shore yourself for an informal beach picnic; no chief stew required.
Picture yourself nibbling on open-faced sandwiches and sipping on sweet lingonberry juice from a thermos while gazing out at the serene water and quaint cottages in the distance. This delightful painting captures the essence of Sweden's rugged beauty.
Painted during a visit with her brother, the artist and her brother spent a leisurely afternoon painting side-by-side and catching up on the past. The vibrant colors and playful style will brighten up any room, transporting you to a simpler time.
This print will transport you to the high seas and paint an invisible super soft navy sweater on your body. You'll feel like you're on a tranquil voyage, with nothing but the sound of the waves and the gentle breeze to keep you company. The painting captures the essence of the sea in such a beautiful way that you'll want to dive right into it. Add this print to your collection and tackle any storm.
