"Close Up"12x12 Acrylic Painting
"In The Weeds"
A series of canvas and panel acrylic originals inspired by long days of chasing weed lines offshore in the Florida Keys.
Last year I became especially inspired by the weed lines of sargassum and all the sea life living below while we were out mahi fishing. I'd be scooping up the weeds and studying their intricate colors, shapes, and patterns. I was finding myself in the water photographing their movement in the waves, and all the fish and sea life hiding within. This collection is full of blues, greens, and golds that I felt the need to bring to life in the studio.
"Close Up" is a 12x12" Acrylic Painting on wood panel. This painting comes wired and ready to hang. It has thick 1" gallery wrapped edges so no framing is needed.
"The open sea is like a desert, and sargassum is an oasis in the desert."
-Blair Witherington, Research Scientist
Sargassum, a brown algae (seaweed) that inspired this whole collection of artwork. Sargassum is a prime nursery habitat for a diversity of large fish as they grow.
