I took a little break from Gate of Reverence to work on this small painting. I had done a ton of research, taking photos at the Nemo & Friends Pavilion at Epcot, to paint the Coral Reef Restaurant Menus and have wanted to do more sea life themed paintings. This months themed exhibition at the 127 SoBo Gallery in Winter Garden, Florida is She Sells Sea Shells: Works focusing on nautical themes and water. Perfect!
This is another painting like Star Struck that I mounted to a cradled board and sealed with a spray acrylic sealer, thus, no need for framing with glass. I like the idea of doing a series of these sea life themed paintings mounted this way. I feel it would make a great collection to hang together, or to set on shelves or table tops!
If you are an artist interested in this process of framing without glass. I am in the process of writing an article on the steps and techniques, which will be available for download. I would like to experiment with a few more sealing options before publishing the article so please stay tuned.
If you are interested in purchasing this painting please contact me. It will be at the 127 SoBo Gallery the months of June and July and if purchased then, 30% of the sales will go to the gallery, which is a non profit organization!
Hope everyone is having a great start to the summer!
