Seascape Commission: Coskata-Coatue, Nantucket

I’ve been waiting to post this one!  After my last landscape post New Landscape Painting: Nantucket Sound, the fabulous Kerry Bridier (who owns Bridier Baubles) contacted me about a painting for her husband as a birthday gift.  They are an awesome couple, she owns a super fun jewelry company and her husband, who is from Nantucket (hence the interest in the painting) and co-founder of Castaway Clothing.  I was thrilled to be part of their birthday celebration!  We talked about a few ideas as I happened to have a fair amount of material I’ve shot on Nantucket.  Kerry selected a shot from the wildlife refuge in Nantucket, Coskata-Coatue, which is on the East side of the island out by Great Point.

The painting is 5×7″ acrylic on layered Lucite (acrylic) panels and custom framed in routed Lucite.  It’s a serene spot and on this day in particular the water seemed to blend into the sky.  While gorgeous,  to create the effect did pose a challenge in painting.

As I’m working heavily in seascapes at the moment but focused on ‘cold water’, this shot I had from the summer was a welcomed rift the theme.

Maybe this is why I’m craving spring so badly?  They were so gracious too, they made sure to put the painting out for their joint birthday party so all the guests could see, just so sweet!

Cheers to the Bridiers!
