Underwater Circus Paintings

Last summer I was invited to show some work at Le’Objects, this lovely home store in Georgetown. Tim, the owner has an amazing design and decorating sense. He has this amazing knack for putting together interesting and beautiful objects. I am a huge fan of his succulent terrariums, his lighting solutions, his turn-of-the-century typewriters, hourglasses, globes and liquor signs. But my favorite things in his store are the many shells, dried coral, starfishes, and other gems from the ocean. Violet was one painting from this series – I love her and the clownfish.

I decided to paint something special to hang in the store and I had a large 3’x4′ board available. I painted an underwater circus performer, an equestrienne of seahorses, who I named “Marina”. It started on ongoing set of paintings, that captures the fantasy of an under-the-sea circus.
