As we approach a new year, I wanted this holiday collection to instill a bit more hope in a world that's currently under great uncertainty & enormous strain.
Keeping this thought in mind, I began to ponder what I could create that would help evoke that sense of hope in you & in your home — especially since we've been spending so much time there these days.
And then it hit me.
I'll paint ocean sunrises!! And holiday ornaments with matching sunrise colors!
It's from this desire that these pieces might help you to re-connect (or stay connected) to a feeling of hope, this Ocean Sunrise Holiday Collection has been lovingly birthed.
So hold on tight during those dark nights, and keep in mind this quote by beloved naturalist, writer & strong advocate for our natural world:
"The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere." ~John Muir
The collection consists of:
- 12 original watercolor paintings (12" x 12" framed)
- 12 watercolor studies (6" x 6" framed) and
- 24 encaustic beeswax ornaments (6 different palettes, 4 of each)
Shimmering gold watercolor paint, gold encaustic wax, and gold frames have been used to unify the collection & give it a touch of elegance. The paintings & studies come already framed, the ornaments arrive with a gold display stand so you can enjoy them long after the tree has been put away, and all are lovingly gift-wrapped in my handcrafted snowflake wrapping paper.
