[ my big beach art ]

I'VE BEEN seeing some fabulous big beach art in spaces...






...and so I decided to create a bit of beach art myself using a pic I shot in Nice on our trip in August.

Rather than frame it, I decided to have it printed on canvas {since it will eventually need to be shipped when we move}.




I gave it a slightly "washed" look in Photoshop and I'm quite happy with how it turned out. I think it will form a good basis for the beach gallery wall project I'll be tackling on my "to do" list.

I love the beach, what a fun way to bring art into a room. I remember once seeing a painting of a bunch of colorful beach umbrellas, loved it.
