Summer Memories, Original Oil Painting on Linen, 24" x 18"
Isn't it funny how memories are always more vivid? "Summer Memories" was created after spending one glorious summer day on the water at Eleven Mile Canyon. It doesn't even matter that the fish weren't biting—it was enough just to bask in the sunlight.
Collect art that humbles you with splendor, reminds you of the source of it all and our place in this vast world. Art that represents your highest self. Art that reminds you of where you have been, are now and WILL be.
"Summer Memories" is an original oil on Belgian linen, 24"x18" created in 2021, framed in a floater frame, and stained with a warm bourbon finish, ready to hang. Add a little nature and authenticity to your space with this vibrant and playful Rocky Mountain statement piece. Inspired by the natural elements present in the canyon, your new art comes with a certificate of authenticity, with a wax monogrammed stamp from my studio, adorned with hand dried wildflowers.
About the Eleven Mile Collection:
I love nature. It's the place where I find balance, peace, and renewal. Inspired by the seasons, the sound of the flowing water, I carry with me visions of wildflowers, and the longing for freedom to roam and explore. This art was created as part of my "Eleven Mile Canyon Collection." Discover more about the collection, my process and inspiration at Shirley Bales Fine Art.
