NOTICE: In 2022, I'm going to be taking my artwork in a new direction, employing it to explore some fresh subjects in an illustration series. I WILL still be making Letters From The Sea Tower for the entirety of 2022, but I plan to take an indefinite break from making new letters at the end of this year. The Past Letters Archive will remain open.

About This Listing
French watercolors and white gouache on professional-grade 100% cotton Arches watercolor paper measuring approximately 8 by 10 inches. Signed by the artist. This is an unframed original painting, not a print. Inspired by a photo taken by Bryana in January 2021 at Sandy Hook Beach, New Jersey.

(Please note that the paper is slightly warped due to the repeated application of water and wet paint. This is a common and natural characteristic of watercolor paintings rendered on any paper that has not been presoaked and should not hamper display of the painting.)

Bryana Says
I spent a month working on this painting in spare moments and the thumb gave me a lot of trouble. This will be surprising to exactly zero people who have ever rendered the human hand in artwork, and I can't say it was surprising to me—I knew what I was getting myself into. But it did prompt me to begin referring to the piece as Weird Thumb. I think the thumb is much improved, but I can't stop calling it that. If you want to own my one and only original painting called "Weird Thumb," this listing is for you.
