“The Coast is Clear” is the perfect coastal art for your blue and white forever interiors. This work of art is painted in a modern Chinoiserie chic style. The coastal scene conveys a feeling of relaxation and restfulness. The simplified blue and white color palette is easy on the eyes and neutral enough to work with any interior. This painting is 40″ X 66″ which creates a feeling of a actually being ON the coast with these large magnificent birds. Almost life size, the prominent pelican and egret keep good company with other hidden birds and insects.
The artist enjoys painting birds that are endangered or protected. As a matter of fact, she is often inspired by the work of James Audubon. “The Coast is Clear” has notes of scientific illustration. However, the birds’ environment is a thick dense coastal scene.
Did you know that pelicans’ bills and pouches get more colorful around breeding season? The artist was very much inspired by these colorful elements. Pelicans date back over 30 million years ago but their population is diminishing due to habitat destruction. The egret is elegantly poised to capture an insect treat. Additionally, dragonflies and snails are waiting to be discovered. Hiding in the brush is another beautifully detailed chinoiserie bird.
These feathered friends “live” in a lush dense scene of blue and white flowers. Among them are blue tropical leaves and delicate Spanish moss. A tiny vine weaves the scene together. Unusual fantasy fruits give the art a bit whimsy!
