New Customized Beach Sand Painting w Natural Seashells and Ocean Waves
This new beach sand painting is the replacement for our original painting. We had to find a new resource for the shadowbox frames, but the original size was not available. This painting is bigger and better! There is more room for your names, so the restrictions for the number of characters per line were removed. You can now fit multiple names, or even a short phrase. The letters have gotten better with a playful flow, as you may have noticed with the paintings in my gallery that were done for ArtFire buyers.
The shadow box frame is again sand painted with an interesting texture befitting a beach theme. The slate blue sand has some small bits of shells ground up throughout, which is like natural beach sand that contains broken shells. The inner edge, which is wider than the original frame, is painted with the same type of sand in a green color.
This frame is more stylish, with a rounded profile, rather than a flat front surface. Two additional features of the new frames are an inner wooden spacer, which we built and added to the frame, and a hard fiberboard backing.
Another bright side of finding a different source, is that these frames are available in additional colors, which we can offer for $10 less than the sand painted frame. The additional finishes available are: Honey, Cherry, and Black. They are listed separately.
Since my original prototype was created, I have found some good resources for shells, which are even more beautiful! I have found some new varieties, which are interesting, such as the sundial shells. They are glued firmly into place, surrounded by natural sand in a mixture of colors to add to the richness of the piece.
Yet another improvement comes from a glossy medium that is now being used for the waves. It has a stiffer consistency and holds the peaks of the waves. The glossy surface reflects light like the ocean, achieving more realistic water effects.
Treat someone to a memory of a day at the beach, or have a memory created for yourself!

Your artwork will be created when you supply the personalized information you want inscribed on your piece at the time you place your order, and also send your approval to Nature Loft Art, once you receive the studio confirmation message containing the details of your order. Please send your confirmation message back promptly to avoid delay of your order. If Nature Loft Art does not hear back from you within 3 days, it will be assumed that all details are correct and your customized or personalized order will be created with the information contained in the confirmation message. You will be responsible for any errors, if you do not confirm the details of your order, therefore it is important to keep communication open with the studio after you place your order, and until you have received your order shipment. Occasionally, there will be a question or situation that comes up when creating the work, that I will want to contact you about, although this is rare.
Each piece is unique to each customer. I strive to create artwork as close to the listing photos as possible, however variations will exist. The photos in the listing represent a prototype. For example, with the customized Beach Sand Paintings, shells will be a similar assortment, but may not be exactly the same.
Please allow 3 weeks for a Beach Sand Painting to be created for you. This does not include shipping time. If you need the item in less than 3 weeks, please convo me.
A personalized Christmas ornament will take 3-5 days before shipping to create. (***See IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT above***)
