A whole lotta fun, with a ton of sass, and a smidge of controversy--that would be my blog. ;) I take the run-of-the-mill daily things that life deals out, and I put a little spin on them...called MY OPINION. Just something to grab a cup of coffee, and relax to. Heck...sometimes I might even make you laugh (don't drink the coffee during these moments...I'm not responsible if you spew coffee out of your nose). Also, please visit www.etsy.com/shop/arcticbarbiegirl to view my online art gallery.

**NEW PAINTING**: SUN and SURF Original painting by artist, Whitney Madison
This painting was inspired by two of my favorite things--Sun, and Surf! I adore the ocean, and the dynamic movement of the waves. I also love how the sun interacts with the water throughout the day. There is nothing like feeling the sun on my face while you rest on my surfboard...
This piece is on a 18"X24"X0.5" stretched canvas. It is done in an acrylic medium, in both matte and metallic paints. Orange glass beads bring fun texture to my signature handcrafted frame that reflects the vivid color of the sunset. The painting is fully texturized in my signature style that literally makes it pop off the canvas. The wave has mirrored blue glass embellishments that make it pop with vibrant color.The whole painting is glazed in high gloss, and perfect for any room.
This will definitely bring color, and a fun to your home! The painting is also very fun to touch. I hope you all enjoy the sun and the surf as much as I do! However, don't forget to wear your 45 SPF! ;)
