This custom ordered piece went to its new home the other day! Adapted from a larger piece I created, this version of “Unpathed Waters” had been requested to give as a birthday gift. The “canvas” used was a vintage wood and galvanized drawer and little elements were added to make the piece more personal. I love creating something knowing who it’s for… The next custom project centers around coastal Maine. I can’t wait to get started!
Made with vintage ephemera (nautical chart, artwork from a 1948 souvenir program, Spanish postage stamp)
Quote is from Winter’s Tale, Act IV, Scene 4 by William Shakespeare
This piece can be seen in person at this weekend’s Brocante Market!
Yesterday I had the good fortune to be at The Sea Hagg. This is one of the coolest local shops! The owner, Jan Holman, and her crew have created a nautical wonderland right in the middle of Cortez, FL. Cortez has an amazing history and is one of my favorite places to be. It’s one of the last working fishing villages on the Gulf Coast and it still has that great “Old Florida” feel to it. The photos I’ve included were all taken in the yard at The Sea Hagg – and the inside of the shop is just as cool. If you’re in the area be sure to check it out then stop in at Star Fish Co. for the best grouper sandwich you’ll ever have…
