Seaside Collection Sample Sale by Joy Silk

I dreamed up the Seaside Collection while visiting my sister in Southern California at Christmastime last year and inspired by Facets of Avalon's "To be beside the Sea". I've always loved to walk on the beach and look for shells and pretty rocks. Each silk painting is unique and features various seashells and coral of the fantasy variety.
