ART TITLE : "Blue Hawaii" ARTIST: Christie Marie Elder-Russell
MEDIUM: Fine Art Acrylic Art Print
Art Story I painted this with the inspiration from my time 8 years working in tattoo shops doing tattoos when I was in my 20's. The inspiration of this artisic style of "finger waves" comes from classic historical Japanese style art that has this style water with flowers (usually cherry blossoms / peony) or dragons incorporated into the design with the waves. I airbrushed my car in 2001 (a silver X-Terra) with polyurethanes and pin-striping with "Japanese Finger Waves". I was inspired to do this commentary gallery mixed media art that would capture the feeling I love with these style waves.
* The original piece of art was done by Christie with Daniel Smith watercolor paints on a large Arches watercolor paper and is available for sale framed in Hawaiian Koa Wood in the original art section of this site.

Time to shine! The high gloss finish of acrylic prints make your art the focus of any room! Half the weight of glass and many times more resistant to impact, acrylic prints are both long-lasting and a seriously modern and impressive way to display your art!
• Made with ACRYLITE® (acrylic/plexiglass) known for its weather resistance, brilliance, transparency and surface hardness. • Reflective surface gives super vivid high definition results. • Floating mount affixed to the back panel means your acrylic print is ready to hang out of the box. • Easy care with no worry of damaging the print. Wipe gently with a mild glass cleaner.
