"Weed Lines" 12x36 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.
"Weed Lines" is a 12x36" 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 beaches have been swamped by sargassum. This gold colored seaweed has been all over the news. Although a nuisance, and as research is showing also a lot of damage to the reef and bentic vegetation, due to lack of sunshine it does still provide a home to many juvenile sea life.
This piece is inspired by a calm summer day offshore
trolling for mahi.
