Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea is an exhibit that I can’t wait to see!

The exhibit features large beautifully designed marine life sculptures made of plastic pollution. The marine debris is collected through volunteer and community clean ups and transformed into larger-than-life sculptures to help teach people about environmental conservation and sustainability through art.

I couldn’t resist painting this little gem of a cabin with the shimmering water and atmospheric qualities of the afternoon sun.
