My inspiration for Treasure IV came from a beautiful dream, where I was at Treasure Island Beach behind the Montage in Laguna Beach, CA. This series was done “en plein air,” created on the beach in my dream. Materials include eco-friendly water-mixable oil with no added chemicals, organic sand, metallic earth pigments, and recycled glass particles. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished silver-gold edges. It comes ready to hang. Artist initialed on front lower right in subtle fashion, so the painting can be flipped or hung vertically for different effects.

Poetic Art Statement: Bring the Treasure Within.
