One thing that distinguishes the artist frame of mind from that of other people is that we seldom leave the observational mode. It is both a blessing and a curse. It's a blessing because you notice an endless stream of visual fascinations, some of which eventually end up in paintings. The curse is that you can't turn it off. Things like the way a shadow will glide along beneath the foam as it floats across the sand in the shallow water, or how the wet sand turns into a mirror of sky as the frisbee your son has tossed sails by.

All images are available unframed, gallery wrapped, or in a 1, 3, 5, or 6 piece furniture grade solid Hawaiian Koa wood frame with either linen or silk liner. Liners come in off-white, gray, or blue. The outside framed dimensions can be calculated from the image dimensions as follows: a 1 piece frame adds 1 inch to the overall framed dimension, a 3 piece frame adds 8 inches, a 5 piece frame adds 10 inches, and a 6 piece frame adds 12 inches. Please call or email and we will be happy to provide images to help you get the perfect frame style.
