Almost 3 feet wide and 4 feet tall, the "Aristotle Tree" needs a large wall. Both canvas and frame are painted a flat, creamy white to avoid competing with the varied colors and textures of metal and driftwood pieces. Notice the twisty metal top and the rusty nail towards the bottom of the tree. The vintage frame was a find, with its scalloped edges and soft details. This tree is timeless, can work with any decor, or colors. Sealed with matte product for safety, to preserve metal.
Quality: The "Aristotle Tree" has been hanging in my (non smoking) home for the past three years and has always been an attention grabber. It is solidly constructed and built to stand the test of time.
This is one of my favorite driftwood trees. I came across a giant vintage framed canvas in 2012, and decided to make an enormous tree. It hangs in my office, but has also graced my bedroom, dining room, and living room walls. Over the years, many have offered to buy it; and I declined. Couldn't part with it. Those interested might want to grab it before I change my mind!

Since I began creating Beach Art four years ago, I've used the above quote in blogs, website, marketing materials. When I'm outdoors, I always feel a sense of wonder (no matter the season) and I've always identified with the sentiment expressed in the above Artistotle quote. Sillly, but true.
Vintage frames are one of a kind. Depends on what I find! Love to paint, refinish, and upcycle vintage and antique frames. All prints and frames go to a professional framer, to ensure they are properly put together.
Packaging: Prints are typically packaged on foam backing board and sealed in clear wrapping. For easier shipping, prints may be rolled and shipped in mailing tubes. Framed prints and Original Beach Art will also be carefully packaged for safe shipping.
In the Cleveland area: I'm willing to make alternate arrangements for those in the Cleveland not needing shipping. Contact me!
Materials: I find what I find. All Originals are one of a kind, and cannot be reproduced. It’s particularly difficult to find enough beach sea glass to create my Christmas trees. They are time consuming to make and often sell very quickly.
