“Solitude” seems like the perfect name for this expansive semi-abstract beach and ocean painting, which provides a visual escape to a peaceful meditative place in your mind. Imagine the serenity this will bring to your home. It's perfect for a coastal-themed decor, or just to remind you of the joy of the sea.
The inspiration for this piece comes from the beach walks that I frequently enjoy where I live in southern California when the tide is low and there’s a wide expanse of sand, and there are only a few people around.
It is an original acrylic painting on canvas, and has some textural interest at the white foam line of the water. It will look very nice in a white or natural frame. The sides are painted to match, so it could be hung as is without a frame if you prefer.
Note: My scanner has put several subtle vertical lines in this image, which are not in the original painting.
