Behind the Canvas

When I grow up, I want to live by the sea. There is nothing more soothing or centering than walking along endless expanse of a cozy beach, combing for shells, my bare feet wet and sandy, and the sound of the surf drowning my worries.

This beach painting was painted en plein air at Seaside, Oregon, and finished in my studio. I wanted to catch that magic hours just before sunset, casting long delicious shadows among the vegetation dancing in the Pacific Northwest breeze. The coastal landscape painting emotes a quiet sort of centering energy, full of light and contemplation. The colorful harmonies of a canvas print are sure to work beautifully in office or home. May it bring healing and security to your life. Enjoy ~Tali
