This is the event that started it all for beachradish images®! We donated 3 images last year - all of which sold - in order to ensure that folks understood whose art they were buying, we set up a website and it snowballed (in a good way) from there.
One year later, we put it to our Facebook fans to select their favorite image for this year's donation. By an overwhelming 69% of the total vote, "Saturday" won:
This image is taken in Del Mar, from Dog Beach. Those of you who know me, know that Elvis (my 3.5 year old lab mix) is my tried and true photo partner. This was a field trip for him outside our usual haunt. I think this image typifies a San Diego Saturday -bright light, palm trees swaying, dogs playing, satisfaction after a morning surf session, and people on the beach - all appreciating and reveling in the coastal environment in which we are fortunate enough to play.
The image will be presented as a 12"x18" limited edition archival print, matted and framed in reclaimed barn wood with a final dimension of 22"x28".
We will also be donating another surf- and ocean-inspired image … but we're keeping quiet on that for now. We'll let you know more as the date approaches! Tickets to the event are $60 per person, includes drinks and appetizers, and a live concert from San Diego native, Tristan Prettyman. Proceeds go to support the San Diego Surfrider Foundation - come cruise the aisles of beach-, surf-, and ocean-themed works that include painters, wood-workers, photographers, and more!
