Coastal Decor

Coastal Decor

This week I did a bit more work on framing paintings and two of them were from the “White Things Series”, entitled “Anchor 1” and “Anchor 2”.

“Anchor 2”


“Anchor 1”


If you love coastal themed decor, or live by the ocean or on a lake, you may enjoy these two pieces. They are 6”x6” and framed in black with a gold liner. I enjoy painting smaller works for several reasons:

  1. Decorating with smaller works of art allows one to change up the decor anytime, as well as create little groupings or vignettes.

  2. Smaller works are more affordable to own for my clients.

  3. Small paintings are more detailed, which I enjoy. I love adding the details in a piece, as they bring the viewer in close to a painting. I like that!

  4. Small paintings can be packed away for different seasons, and changes in decor. For example, I always use my small 4”x4” seasonal paintings to decorate my home at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I tuck them in amongst the candles and floral decorations and it looks so good!

You can see two examples here of how one could use these paintings in decorating a space. Pull together your favorite sea shells, candles, architecture books or anything beloved and set up a wonderful grouping in your home or office!


So remember when you may be thinking of buying a smaller painting and you see not such a small price, it takes a certain level of skill to paint small, and it takes more time. With large paintings, comes big brushes, large strokes, loose imagery and paintings that are done more quickly than a small piece. The smaller the painting, the more the detail, the more the detail, the longer the time it takes to create. Small paintings are little gems! These two paintings look great together. If you have a coastal theme going on, well….you know. They can be yours to treasure for generations to come! Click HERE to make them yours.

Daisies

It’s Daisy time in our neck of the woods, and I’m looking forward to creating some new works with these cute little flowers. They grow wild in our area, and last a long time. The best part about them is they don’t smell so great and the deer leave them alone! I have to grow my gardens with fencing around them to save my plants from the ravenous deer. All they do is eat, yet they look like they are starving! But the daisies, they thrive and don’t become a deer’s mid-nite snack!

Here’s a few Daisy paintings for my Daisy loving buds:
