Behind The Canvas: Tide Pools

This is the third installment of my "Behind the Canvas" series (you can view the first & second). I wanted to do these posts because I find it so fascinating to take a peak behind peoples creative processes. To see what inspired them to grab their camera and capture a moment, or why they chose the colors they did to paint their master piece. So that got me to think that since this space has become more of a place to share my creative journey with you all. I wanted to start a new series where I take you behind the canvas and share some of the inspiration and stories behind my paintings.

This piece is entitled "TIDE POOLS."

This was one of those painting where it feel like I sat down to paint and magic happened. It was like everything else faded away and it was just me and my brushes, it happened so quickly and then the moment was gone.

What was left is what you see here.

I entitled this painting "Tide Pools," because it reminds me of being a child, kneeling at the rocks edge trying to find these little secret places where water collected & made little secret worlds just for me to explore.

PS. Now through the month of September all Art purchases (on my Website & Etsy shop) will receive a free little art gift with every order :)
