Warm Sand and Beautiful Clouds
About this artwork
Artist Joanie Ford depicts a few beachgoers enjoying a relaxing day out by the shore. Clouds provide a cool shadow from the sun's summer heat as a gentle breeze blows. Visitors run and play in the water, build sandcastles, and lay under the shield of colorful umbrellas. The scene comes to life with Joanie's loose brushwork and soothing vibrant hues. I wanted to create a piece that showed both beach and cloud expansion, and a suggestion of families using the beach.
