The Lost City of Atlantis
As a kid, I remember watching cartoons and reading comics that talked about the lost city of Atlantis. That it was once on land and very prosperous and lively, but then it sunk and the people lived on either as mermaids OR they now live in a giant glass bubble.
I also remember seeing all the colors in this supposed ancient city, filled with fish and life, and how supposedly abundantly wealthy they were even though they kept to themselves.
The reason I named this piece Atlantis, is because it reminds me of that city and things in and around it.
When I look at this piece, I see the bright greens and blues of the fish in those depictions of Atlantis. Like schools of blue tangs (Dory anyone?). You’ll also notice small hints of silver that remind me of the treasure in that city and, moreover, the way that fins shine as they pass through the water. Even the movement of the piece itself is like the motion of the ocean, and how it ripples in the current.
But is it for you?
This is a solid piece that looks great either direction. It’s not as modern as some of my other pieces, nor as aggressive. I think this piece will fit right into a home that has sealife or is decorated as such, or fans of blue and green (Seahawks fans, I’m calling you out, lol).
Either way, get it while you can. 🙂
About this Item
This is a one of a kind piece. Acrylic/gloss enamel on Canvas. This is NOT a print or copy, it is unique. Signed and dated on the back by the artist. Sides are painted either a solid color that matches the piece, or continuing complimentary colors. INCLUDES CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY.
This item comes UNSTRETCHED, meaning flat on the canvas. Creating my paintings on unstretched canvas allows for different effects that cannot be achieved on stretched canvas (canvas on a frame).
The advantages to selling this piece unstretched are twofold:
It’s cheaper and easier to ship. For unstretched pieces, I can offer lower prices for the sheer fact that shipping large pieces is expensive no matter how I do it.
Also, you can decide how to stretch it. With raw canvas, you can have a wooden frame made for you by a local framing shop or made with stretcher bars and have it stretched over that.
OR you can have it put into a large glass frame and hang it that way. Really, it depends on your tastes, but it’s your decision to make.
The piece shown is at LEAST 3 inches bigger on each side than the size it becomes when stretched on a gallery style frame.
This item ships AS IS. I don’t attach wire so that you can hang any direction you want. This piece can easily be hung with two small screws or nails, and can be hung from the outer frame or the cross bar (I have found this to be the more study way to do it). You could also attach wire or small hanging clips if you wish. Hanging suggestions included with purchase.
Want a Different Version?
Like the piece but want something a tad different? Maybe a slightly different color scheme or size? No worries! I’d love to work with you in creating a custom piece to fit your home, business, or lifestyle! The final price would depend on materials and size, but if you don’t like the final product – you don’t buy it! That easy.
