Recently I took a trip to Louisiana & more specifically, Lake Pontchartrain. One of the things I noticed about the natural art gallery there in Louisiana was the colour Blue. It was so blue. The bluest of them all. I fell in love & after driving over the Lake on the worlds longest open water bridge, I was inspired by the wide open skies filled with what I call "Louisiana Blue".
This piece has been hand painted using Acrylics & has tones of whites, peaches, pinks, lilacs, blues, slate greys & some silver. The size of this pure cotton canvas is 30x30cm with a depth of around 3.5cm. It comes unframed. But like all canvasses is ready to be hung on your wall.
Going back to my roots, I recently launched my Acrylic on Canvas range as a permanent fixture within my business. Being a Cold Water & Wild Swimmer I see the Ocean from a different perspective. Whether it be 5°c or 21°c, I embrace whichever the weather, whatever the time of year & whatever the water current is. This swimming, this wild or cold-water swimming is my cure, my safe place, my healing moment & my escape from the daily troubles that arise due to being a cancer patient as well as someone who can be super anxious.
My Acrylic paintings are hand painted on white cotton canvas & come in various sizes. What you won’t find here is prints of my canvasses. Every single piece is unique & a one of a kind piece. The colour scheme I use throughout is shades of dreamy blues, pinks, lilacs, peaches, whites & oranges. I turn what everyone else sees into my perspective, my interpretation of stormy seas, calm seas, big waves, dark skies, blue skies & so on, I turn this into a dream like piece. In hope to relax the recipient, to calm you, to take you away & for you to see the world in a different light. All my Acrylic pieces are taken from memory of a swim or an ocean view…from Chapel Porth Beach in Cornwall to the blue skies of Lake Pontchartrain Louisiana.
I believe that pieces of art and gifts should not be defined by monetary value. Instead, they can be defined by sentiment, memories and love. You as the recipient or even if this is for a gift have something to treasure forever without having to pay a fortune for a piece of artwork.
