Designs from the Sea is my series of paintings that are “Shellscapes”, where I incorporate real sand and shells into each painting. Little gifts from the sea as I like to or think of them, making each piece special, unique and one of a kind.
I incorporate shells and sand that I have found across the world, but mostly here in California in the San Diego where I live. I love to shell and each piece is such a joy to find, each day is different and the sea is constantly changing so you never know what you are going to find.
I so love the sea, the colors, the sound of the waves, smell of the salty air and the unique wonder of all it has to offer. These shellscapes and paintings from the Designs from the Sea series is a collection of those little sea gifts that I have found that you can then enjoy in your own home.
This way no matter if you are close to the sea or not you can have your own little piece of the sea hanging on your wall as fine art.
From the Artist:
This piece has real shells from the San Diego area, and sand that is really light I got in Sanibel, Florida. I wanted a really light, calm and peaceful scene where the beach is overcast bringing in such a calm and serine feeling. I think that is such a great thing about the beach is that even when it is overcast, raining or gloomy the beach is still captivating and wonderful. I wanted to capture this in this painting.
