EcCeptical – The Beach Series

ECCEPTICAL®  – Avant-Midi, The Beach Series – #751

Materials: balsa wood, sand, fabric, household glue, paint, felt, findings, other material.

I have spatial skills. This is how EcCeptical® first began in 2001: I found the postcard of an aerial picture of a beach in California. Here is the postcard. I thought the towels and umbrellas on the sand were making a pattern. I was painting oils at the time. I began painting a beige background for the sand, I call it “grand fond” and I added the towels and umbrellas for the pattern to be clear. One day, after making 18 beach aerial patterns, I thought, “Why wouldn’t I make a beach in a jewelry form? Then, I created this one very first series. Prior to this, I was mostly making earrings with unusual materials. This was the beginning of EcCeptical®. Below is the postcard I found:
