In December 2016, I attended the festive meeting and Christmas Party of the Associated Artists of Ocean Shores, Washington, (of which I am a member), and brought my painting for their contest for the artwork that would be used as their poster art in 2017.
The title for the theme of the painting was, “Life is a Beach”. I thought about this title and the use of the painting before I created it. I felt it should be simple, yet, very colorful, as the backdrop for their poster. The wording they will use needed to be able to jump out from the painting and be easily read…and I felt the art needed to catch your eye easily.
Here is the result.
