48 x 48
Oil on Canvas
5" Rose Gold Floater Frame (This frame will add about 10 inches to the overall size- so the painting will be more like 58 x 58). This is a more expensive frame so if you do not like it, let me know. I can sell it unframed and refund the frame cost.
This painting has been hanging in my family room since I had it framed because I am so happy with it. If you knew me you would know I don't usually have much of my own work hanging in my house except the loads of ones I have done of my children, so I feel like it says a lot about the piece that I continue to like it after looking at it so much. The myth about using no pure white in paintings is one I break all the time. I feel like the way to make it make it work is that I also pay a lot of attention to the neutrals and varying values of whites that are in shadow. This painting, however, is extremely stark white and with almost no variation. I did not go into this piece to do that, but loved it when it hit this place and simply decided to stop. Stopping at your favorite place, and not overworking a painting, is something any artist knows can be a serious challenge. I am glad I stopped. I named it Coastline for no reason except every time I looked at it that is what it felt like to me.
