Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~ Khalil Gibran

In times of worry, I find that focusing on the good, beautiful, and inspirational things in life helps restore my weary spirit; I have been reconnecting with seascape painting in celebration of the summer season. For me, nature is a reminder of the incredible work of the Creator and creating art is a way for me to celebrate and pay homage to God.

This piece, “Sunset Seascape”, oil on canvas, is from a sunset reference photo I took many years ago in Key West and have just completed. Every time I look at this piece, it reminds me that even with the challenging times in which we live, there is still beauty, peace, and tranquility to be found. Creating this work and experiencing it over again has been restorative for my soul. I sincerely hope that it does the same for others as well.

I believe that in sharing our creativity, we have the opportunity to inspire and encourage other people, and we can use it as an opportunity to let them know that they’re in our thoughts, prayers, and good wishes. With this in mind, I was inspired to design and order custom thank you notes using this painting as my focal image. The cards are premium art watercolor paper with six color printing and am so delighted with how they came out. They are truly beautiful and of exceptional quality. I hope that the recipients of the thank you notes experience moments of peace, tranquility, and appreciation when they receive my card and heartfelt note.Thank you note design by Annie Dash Studios
