Meet Ocean Blue Galleries’ newest artist: David C. Miller.
David Miller’s “Windows to Paradise” are “the most exciting and unique form of artwork introduced to the art world since the inception of the giclee’ print,” declares Ocean Blue’s website. “Meticulously painted, each piece delivers a true three-dimensional feel of an actual ‘Window to Paradise’ on your wall.”
The site continues: “Miller creates this facade with warm contrasting colors and his ability to mimic nature’s lighting. He furthers this illusion by casting shadows throughout the painting masterfully drawing us into its center. This canvas hangs flat on a wall like most conventional paintings. It is hand-stretched around patented custom-built wooden stretchers that are identical in contour and shape to the illustration itself, thus giving us an extraordinary realistic feel. Although the image is a flat two-dimensional print on canvas, nothing could look more three-dimensional. From beautiful seascapes to Italian Villas, Miller has completely stepped out of the box, and back in through the window.”
Ocean Blue is located at 284 Beach Drive in downtown St. Petersburg.
