Inspired by Surrealist artists Patrick Desmet and Imber
I created Beach Umbrellas from photos taken a Boca Grande Beach, Florida, USA, all photos were taken with a Nikon D90 DSLR and a Sigma 17-70 mm lens and postwork completed in PaintShopPro.

I love to photograph anything seaside and colorful! I am exploring many artforms and love the work of many here on Redbubble! I call all my dabblings “Kim’s Kaboodle”. I am also making mosaics from glass tiles and other media, drawing and painting. My art can also be found at link
