It's hard to explain the tranquil feeling of sitting on a blanket with your feet in the sand, especially when it's at the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The feeling is peaceful, calm, slow, and thoughtful . . . the feelings we crave, but find hard to acheive in our daily lives.
Well, "mama found her chi" (as my husband says) at the Outer Banks. It had a lot to do with a soul-full retreat, Serendipity, that I've attended for the last three years. I'll write another post about the retreat-that-stole-my-heart . . . but today I want to share with you some artwork that I made about this amazing beach. I sold several prints at the retreat for Vendor Night, so decided to extend the prices online too.
I used photos that I took in the Outer Banks last year, enlarged them onto color copies, adhered them to canvases, and used all sorts of fun mixed media to create pieces of art. There are four beach paintings in all, but I've made three variations for each. These are all high quality giclee prints. Originals are are SOLD.
Prints are available to purchase on my Etsy store. These prices are super low and only good Nov 5-12th!
1. Plain (photo and mixed media artwork, NO WORDS)
2. Quote (printed quote added to print)
3. "Serendipity" title (meaningful to those that attended the retreat)
Here's a flyer to clarify the variations of each - a few close-ups follow, and you can visit my Etsy Shop to see larger images of each.
