Summer Art

Do you like my artwork?  This was great fun to make.  I picked up a map of Florida and cut out the coastline showing Destin.  We've visited twice with family and it was here that I saw the ocean for the first time.  I treated the canvas with Gesso and painted the ocean with a mix of blue and purple.  Then I used Mod Podge to adhere the map.  I had to cut out the coastline because I didn't want the map key showing.  After the Mod Podge dried, I painted the words, sunshine, and sailboats.  It is a pretty piece of art now hanging on my wall and bringing to mind happy summer memories at the beach.  You could easily make your own piece of map art showing places you have visited.
