“Cape Canaveral Sunset” oil on canvas, 20×16″ by Annie Dash Studios

“There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy.” – Ralph H. Blum

Many thanks to Amy Chrisco for the use of her reference photo from her vacation to Cape Canaveral, FL

One source of inspiration that always touches my heart and fills me with wonder is the spectacular beauty of God’s world. When I saw this vacation photo taken by my lovely friend, Amy Chrisco, I was struck by the radiant color of the sea and sky and the overall sense of tranquility of the photo. I asked her if I could use it as a reference to create a painting and she graciously agreed.

Creating this painting brought so much joy, beauty and gratitude into my heart — in a frazzled world, it brought an immense sense of calm and peace to me, and I hope that it conveys peace and beauty to others as well.

This piece is part of a collection of seascape paintings that are now available as fine art giclee print and canvas reproductions in the Annie Dash Studios Shop.

If you would like to commission a waterscape painting from a photo of a meaningful place for your family, please get in touch! I will be opening up commission opportunities soon and would happy to follow up with you.

I’m wishing you and your family a calm and peaceful day, friends!
