Life's a Beach - isn't it?!

Hi all! Been busy trying to build up my portfolio and seem to be racing from one art project to another!! My latest endeavour is another collage on canvas piece. Living so close to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, and the huge variety of shells that can be found here, I've been wanting for some time to try to capture that lazy, hazy days of summer feel...with a few local shells thrown into the mix! Here's the resulting work:

Set on a 12" x 12" canvas which has been covered in light brown acrylic paint, I've then used scrapbooking paper for the background, along with embellishments and shells to create a sense of depth and to complete the design. 

 It really does convey the sense of relaxation, and summery beach days!

This art piece is perfect just to place on the wall, or could be used to show your own photos of the beach - just mount them and display! 

That's all for now! Thanks for stopping by!
