This painting of sailboats in a somewhat minimalist style is relaxing and very expansive. The predominantly blue and green color scheme with a horizontal composition contributes to the serene feeling. Imagine being out on the water in a sailboat on a beautiful warm and breezy summer day, or watching the sailboats from the shore with a view to a distant horizon. This piece hanging in your home or office will give you a visual escape to a more peaceful place when life gets stressful. This is an original acrylic painting on canvas, and would look great in a white, natural or mid-tone wood frame. The sides are painted to match the image, so can be hung unframed if you prefer. Comes wired and ready to hang. All archival quality materials. Finished with two coats of UV protective varnish. Ships from my studio in Oceanside, CA. See more of my art at www.BarbaraBlairArt.com
