Ready to Hang

The title for this work was chosen as I had recently visited Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach, and was struck by how magnificent and magical the sunset was. Seeing the city of Long Beach gleaming in the golden light at dusk, with the skyscrapers of downtown Long Beach shimmering, their reflection mirrored in the waters of the harbor lagoon to my right, and to my left, the lighthouse silhouetted against the same beautiful backdrop, with its golden clouds and clear skies.

I created this work after having taken my inspiration from several photos that I had taken on the day. (Interestingly, a three masted sailboat had crossed into the lagoon just after I'd taken my shots!..) I was so inspired and moved, that I decided to create a drawing that would preserve that beautiful view, and create a memory of the emotions I felt on that lovely day.

>>> Please Note: The drawing is matted & wrapped on its own individual backing board. It is ready to either hang as is, or to be placed into your own personal frame

Hello!.. I'm Rimi, and I'm happy that you're taking the time to browse my artworks. I was an architectural technologist, until a few years ago I found my passion in mixed media ink drawings, photography and sketching. I usually work on quite a few separate pieces at the same time, as I find that my drawings & designs develop fairly randomly, each piece changing and evolving as I look it and add to it, so that by the time it's done, it's quite different to my original vision but at the same time, it just feels right (if that makes sense!..)
