- by Nathan John Strother

This week's theme: Piers

pier
-noun
1.a structure built on posts extending from land out over water, used as a landing place for ships, an entertainment area, a strolling place, etc.; jetty.

There are large piers and small piers. They are found on the shores of oceans, rivers and lakes. They are used as landmarks when on the beach or water. Piers are a good spot to fish, feed the gulls or sun. When it's really sunny and hot, if you go underneath the big ones, you will find cool shade.


Art: Daytona Pier by Artist Nathan John Strother
This is a seascape painting, done in fine soft pastel, depicting a cloudy day on the pier at Daytona Beach, Florida. The colors are cool blues, turquoise, and violets, with the pier in shades of umber and sienna. The finished pastel has been preserved with a fixative to deter smearing or paint particles loosening, and protects the painting for years to come.
The image itself is 9" x 12" and will come professionally matted and framed up to a larger 12 x 16. It comes initialed on the front, signed on the back, and with a certificate of authenticity showing it to be an original work of fine art by contemporary artist N.J. Strother.
