With Father's Day right around the corner, I've pulled together a few things I think the creative dads/grandpas/uncles/father figures will love—including some of my tried & true favorites, some unique gifts, plus a few things that will help him relax and get creative.
Because a little something special goes along way in saying "I love you" to these awesome men in our lives.
I love decorating with beach and ocean art! It gives a space a relaxing-vacation vibe. I suppose that's why I paint beach art regularly and decorate with it in my own home.
Of course, you can make your own art to display in your home, office, or rental space as well. It can save you dollars, but more importantly it creates a space that has something made by you, and that makes it extra special.
I reminisce about the days I had a creative studio, with so much space I couldn't fill it up. I really did have that once and I loved it.
But, I wouldn't give up being able to travel full time with my family. Four years ago, I traded in my home and studio for a life on the road. Since, then, my family and I have traveled all over America, having visited all fifty states! We've enjoy a little international travel too when we can. Plus, I still get to be an artist, just not with a big studio full of art supplies and creations.
Acrylics are a remarkable permanent, rich, colorful, versatile, and adaptable medium that gives artists endless possibilities. No wonder they attract artists all over the world! These easy breezy beach painting lessons will teach you how to get started with acrylics and take you on a journey to the ocean with them as we paint some simple beach art.
