FLORIDIAN SUNSET (2018)

This piece holds a special place in my heart.

When I was in middle school, my best friend moved away to Florida.

 

To this day I can happily say that we are still best friends! She's pursuing her dreams as well as an amazing singer; you can check out her website here

Floridian Sunset, 2018

Since she moved, I've been able to visit a few times. This painting is of one of the photos I took while visiting.

This is an 18 x 24in. oil painting, and here's me holding it after I painted it.

Here's the original photo!

I was a self-taught artist until college, so I consider this piece as a milestone in my career. It was my first oil painting, and I fell head over heels for painting.

To this day, the painting hangs in my kitchen, and every time I see it I think of my best friend Angie Rey living it up at the beach in Florida.
