ORIGINAL "Freedom" Sailboat in 21 x 24 Vintage Frame
"Freedom" Sailboat 16" x 20" original beach art in 21" x 24" vintage, dark wood frame. Created from beach metal, wire, and plastic found on my walks along Lake Erie. The flag was done with acryllic paint. All metal sealed for safety. Cobalt blue, rusty brown, white, red, white and blue flag.
PRINTS ALSO AVAILABLE.
As soon as I found the large metal "sail" on the left, I knew I was creating a sailboat. Over many weeks (and walks) I found the base for the boat, the mast, flag and wire. It was missing something, until I found a plastic shaped "sail" at right. Then I found the Perfect vintage frame. The whole process took a few months to come together.
This was donated to Festival of Trees 2015, a Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Ohio event held at LaMalfa each November. It will be under an artist themed tree as a "gift" along with art created by several other Cleveland artists. I'm proud to have been included in the event in this small way.
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.
