Ready to Hang
When I created this semi-abstract peaceful and contemplative painting of water and seashore, I imagined drifting in a boat just off-shore on a calm and lazy summer day. I chose blues and greens combined with a minimal horizontal design to create a very calming, serene image. The soft yellow adds a touch of complementary color to balance the predominantly cool colors. It is perfect for a coastal-themed decorating style or beach cottage. 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. Comes wired and ready to hang. Finished with two coats of UV protective varnish. All archival quality materials. Ships in a box from my studio in Oceanside, CA.
