2011 Ocean Gardens Series..




Click on the pictures to make them bigger! :)

I love doing these fun little ocean gardens. Little tide pools of ocean life. So here is my series for the summer of 2011. The first two and the last one are larger pieces...approx 6"x5". The rest of these are ACEO's..2 1/2"x 3 1/2".


This year I created them in pen and ink and colored pencil.


I will be posting them in my Etsy Shop tomorrow morning!!

I do so love the little fishes and bitsy crabs.

Bits of treasure laying about!

I think I will create a couple more of these on canvas fabric..to create tote bags with..with permanent markers for easy washing! Next up though..I think I will do an ocean scene with a mermaid or two and lots of sea life...hmmm maybe a humpback whale..what do ya think??
Have a wonderful week all!
Hugs, Sarah

I haven't seen these before. Like that they retain the 'you' style, while perhaps being slightly asian insprired? I don't know, but they are nice!

My niece just went on a whale watch in San Francisco and saw a humpback mother and calf!

LOVE these painting. The idea of the totes is pretty cool Sarah.

Such sweet and mesmerizing pieces and I love them all. Keep up the great work. I think they would be nice stitched up as embroidery or applique and embroidery.
