OCEANS III


"Oceans III"
Original
Oil on canvas
24" x 22"
$750
©Nancy Tokos 2016


Original.  Never-ending fascination with the ocean.  Someday, I sit and think "what am I going to call this one." Sometimes I know the title before I pick up the brush.  But then the direction of a painting can suddenly change because they really do acquire a life of their own.  You know, backlighting or a shadow or an object will turn out more interesting that the main attraction, so, everything shifts.

This is an original work of art by California artist, Nancy Tokos, member American Impressionist Society, San Diego Portrait Society and Oil Painters of America.  Oil on canvas.  Safely packaged and shipped via FedEx. Allow 1-5 days for shipping. Shipping in Continental USA is $30USD.  Shipping outside of Continental USA will be calculated and adjusted. Save shipping and take delivery from my bricks and mortar studio location in San Diego.  Colors, values, may vary slightly between the actual painting and the image on your computer due to my digital camera settings, time of day the photograph is taken and the monitor you are looking at right now. *

Original.  These are dinosaurs of the 21st century.  I love to stand and watch these guys fly in formation, mere inches from the ocean surface, skim for breakfast, lunch and dinner.    Other times, when there is a school of fish, they fearlessly dive-bomb and then ... gulp !  Entertainment reality-style !
