She's up to something, what could it be? The iconic coffee shop appears to have endured dramatic changes to the earth, and now the seafaring traditions have been revived. But is it romance on the high seas? Or high jinks for the sailors? Hmm ... something's brewing! This painting tells a little history of the Starbuck company that many do not know. Their logo is a mermaid (technically it's a siren with twin tails, but artists can change things a bit) and their name has it's roots in the book, "Moby Dick," by Herman Melville, which featured a first mate named Starbuck. Hence the mermaid under a Starbucks sign, and a classic ship coming in to land on the beach represent a nod to their heritage.
Please allow a few weeks for Tim to complete a mixed Media Painting. Each is individually created when ordered, these are not mass produced.
Mixed-Media Paintings are created with archival printers inks on Archival Canvas, then Tim hand paints directly on the canvas, using acrylic paint & paint brushes. He creates something unique on each canvas. Then he applies a clear acrylic finish for protection from the elements. These paintings are offered unframed, or choose the framed option. An unframed painting will be wired and ready to hang, but the staples holding the canvas to the stretcher bars (on the side of the canvas) will be visible - it should be framed at some point. Our framed paintings are in a black wood frame (hand crafted for us here in WA. state) and wired so they're ready to hang.
