A Decorative Seascape
Created by using digital collage techniques and traditional watercolor media, this seascape wall art print uses soothing blue and gray tones to create a sense of serenity and balance. Blue, in all its tones, is a calming, soothing color, ideal for bedrooms and places of meditation. Pick a color from the painting, and give it a try as a frame.

White borders have a wonderful coastal vibe and they bring a sense of freshness, summertime brightness.
They tend to open up a room and give off a feeling of open space, expansion. In opposition to dark frames, or dark trims, which are particular to elegant older homes or classic victorian interiors, white frames and trims bring a very casual, modern, young style to a home.
As I was saying in THIS post, the frame is a GATE to the world inside the artwork. It is a separation between the reality surrounding it, and its own reality.
Here are some methods to choose a white frame for your artwork:
Thick white frames make the dark colors stand out
and the light hues blend in the background. This works wonderfully for small to medium sized artworks. I personally don’t like large size artworks in thick white frames, because it makes the artwork seem to dissipate outwards.
Thin, minimalistic white frames look really good above a shelf or in an intimate corner
(as in the attached picture with the seashells). The brightness of the white creates a sense of expansion and airiness. A couple of nicely placed art prints like this, above your workspace, will create a cozy feeling. Thin white frames look good on large artworks, too.
Create a gallery wall of artworks in white frames,
that will create the “Whoa!” moment in the room. Make a cohesive arrangement of artworks (and photos or other unconventional art, if you’d like), choosing white frames as a binding theme. (Of course, for variation, you can throw in a couple of different frames of other colors. But I would not go for more than 2).
White frames on mini art prints
are the ideal work desk, space-conscious decor idea. Convince yourself with the next photo of my mini art print.
All these frame options are available at my FineArtAmerica store, plus a ton of matching mats, in different sizes and paper textures. Check them out.
Mini Art Prints
Add art into your everyday, with fun-sized mini art prints that can fit on any desk.
Rad art doesn’t have to lay in a fancy frame. I personally LOVE wall hangings, because they are versatile, easy to transport and pretty much fit into any space.
Make this seascape wall art an integral part of your coastal home decor.
