"Violet Sea" - original acrylic by Sea Dean
"Island Sunrise" - original acrylic by Sea Dean
Sea Dean is an artist friend of mine - and I have admired her work for quite some time. Whenever I get a few $$'s ahead in my account (from various art sales), I like to purchase some art from fellow art friends. It is always an honor to own a piece from a fellow artist - as an artist myself, I know the amount of work that often goes into even the smallest of pieces. These 2 paintings are proof of that effort.
I loved the first one, Violet Sea, from the first day she posted it in her DPW gallery. The piece spoke to me and I was in love with the color & shapes. But I lacked the funds at the time, so I waited. Then suddenly she put it up for auction and I thought "oh no, some one else will own it!" That sparked me & I said "now is the time." So I bid, and I won, and now I own it to admire. The colors are even more beautiful in person - and there is an iridescent glow to it, especially when the light hits certain areas. What a wonderful piece of art!
The second painting was part of an artist swap I did with Sea. We traded pieces of art! Have you ever done that with another artist - it's wonderful. There was a piece of my art that Sea liked and I was happy to trade it for another one of her pieces. I chose Island Sunrise - love how she handled the clouds. And the colors just jump off the piece right at you. She has a wonderful talent for capturing the ocean & the sky.
Please click on this link - and head over to see Sea Dean's gallery of work. She handles all sizes, from large size paintings and small ACEO cards - plus everything in-between. She also does commissions, and will gladly do a rendition of something she has that has previously sold. What a wonderful way to get a one-of-a-kind piece of original art from a great artist!
Also, check out her blog where she writes more about her pieces, and gives you links to some of her favorite posts & blogs.
Thank you my dear art friend, for sharing your art. And for your gift - I will read it with much enthusiasm!!
