An expansive, peaceful ocean scene of gently breaking waves and a sandy beach, in colors of light aqua and warm sand. The inspiration for this painting comes from the long beach walks that I frequently enjoy living close to the ocean in southern California. The soft colors and horizontal design contribute to the calming effect that I wanted to convey with this piece.
This is an original acrylic painting on canvas, and would look great in a white or natural frame. It can also be hung unframed as the sides are painted to match the image.
