ART TITLE :"Blue Hawaii" ARTIST:Christie Marie Elder-Russell
MEDIUM: Archival Fine Art Print or Digital
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.
