Look what emerged from the sea!

I have been painting for years for my own personal pleasure and an occasional commission piece here and there. But it wasn't until my brother invited my son and I to join his family at Stone Harbor for a week did the possibility of an Etsy shop exist. I had taken all of my painting stuff to work at the house. Then I thought, well, why not join everyone at the beach? So I did! And WOW! I came alive as an artist! The sounds of the gulls, the surf rippling and sometimes waves crashing, watching the sanderlings run up and down the beach trying to outrun the waves, the gorgeous umbrellas popping up like overnight mushrooms all along the beach. It was an immersion of the senses that enveloped me like a loving womb.
All that week I painted and painted and came out with about 10 pieces. I was shocked. My niece had the idea the idea that I ought to have an Etsy shop. She was about the third person who had said that so I decided now was the time. It started off with my just doing small wood blocks, then grew to paintings, and then to prints. Like a wave, it just kept growing and growing. Then it crashed and my work became an all new wave. I keep riding the waves of artistic creativity and letting what wants to come...come.
Summer can be all year long with the right paintings on the wall. Perhaps one of the places holds a special memory for you, too, like it has for me. Many of my paintings were done plein air. I can't wait for the spring and summer to get outside and create a whole new batch of outdoor scenes. In the meantime, it's working from photos I took while at the shore... birds, buildings, the different colors of water with every new beach I see....ahhhh, so many wonderful memories. I can almost smell the sea air!
I have lived on the Connecticut coast my whole life and have been very fortunate to be so near the shore for glorious inspiration. It is truly my sacred space.

Welcome to the shore and my Etsy Shop! My shop policies are "Buy originals, buy prints! Commission a painting!" Ok, that's a given.

Estimated shipping times
I'll do my best to meet these shipping time estimates, but cannot guarantee them. I meet my own deadlines for shipping but have no control over what the USPS or UPS does. Both have more than adequate tracking services and you will be provided with tracking information upon payment of your order. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose.

I enclose a note with every order that says "If you have a problem with an order please let me know immediately so I can work with you to make sure you are happy with your order." If there is damage done in transit, please take photos of the print and packaging and send it to me as orders are insured. If you order a painting they are sent Priority Mail or UPS and come Signature Required and Insured. Paintings are irreplaceable. It's nearly impossible to reproduce most of them. A claim with the USPS or UPS will be made for a refund. Please let me know what the best way to ship a painting to you is based on your experience.

Your print or original painting will ship within 1-3 business days. Everything is shipped via USPS unless you choose otherwise. If you prefer another method, an additional charge may occur once I find out what the difference in shipping fees will be.
Each print arrives in a cellophane sleeve to keep it clean. They are then protected with a sturdy fiber board and placed in a bubble envelope to ensure safe travel. Paintings are securely packed to ensure there will be no damage during transit.
I am a firm believer in recycling so if you order a painting or something else that comes in a box it may be a recycled box. Many of my packing materials are recycled materials, bubble wrap, styrofoam, etc and if you can recycle them on your end it would even be more wonderful. :)
