Seaside Painting Prints
**8x10 frames are currently backordered till August
This print is a photo print reproduction of my painting with a linen canvas texture to mimic a real painting.
Seaside is our favorite place in the world. Mike and I took our first vacation there together 13 years ago, we were married there in 2010 and we've tried to return every year since. (Read my posts, here.) We did not have plans to go this March for spring break since we were opening the new store, but we had plans to go with my sister and her family at the end of May instead. When the quarantine began, our trip was 10 weeks away - we'd been counting the days until we could reunite in the perfect little town of Seaside and Covid could be behind us.
We thought 10 weeks would be plenty of time for us to safely wait it out - perfectly timed. Seaside had been this light at the end of the tunnel we'd been looking forward to this entire time. With the uncertainty facing the reopening, last week we made the final decision to cancel our trip. We have all experienced one cancelled plan after the other - weddings, graduations, proms, reunions, birthdays. I know we're not alone in our disappointment.
I've been meaning to do this painting the entire time we've been in quarantine. It wasn't until our trip was cancelled that I really needed to paint it - yearning for that free, unleashed spirit of a visit to those sugary sand beaches and aqua waters, and the feeling of riding our bikes to the beach with picnics in tow and cousins giggling. When I look at this painting, I can remember those feelings of breathing in that salty breezy sea air and knowing how good it all is.
It will still be there for us, and we'll make it back again soon.
