Coral Reef #1 by Marcy Brennan

Coral Reef #1 - oil and cold wax painting on 20" x 20" x 2" birch cradled board - $950

This is the first in a series of four oil and cold wax paintings on cradled birch panels. In working this series, I returned to my love of the colors of the waters that surround us where my husband and I live on beautiful Hutchinson Island, Florida. In working the final stages of the paintings, I began adding corals to the blues on two of the pieces, and as I added some textures to the pieces, they reminded me of underwater coral, thus the name for the series.  This particular painting has a feeling of ocean and sky.
