About This Image

When I was growing up, one of my favorite book series was The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. The worlds and characters Lewis wrote about were incredibly real and vivid to me. It felt to me then as if Narnia was a place I could stumble into myself one day. Perhaps that’s a dream I have never entirely escaped? Not that I ever tried!

If you’re a fan of Narnia, then the title of this watery art probably doesn’t need explanation. The Last Sea was a place visited by Caspian and his crew in the Voyage of The Dawn Treader. It formed part of the border at the edge of Narnia. Beyond the Last Sea was the Silver sea and the literal edge of the world of Narnia. Beyond these places was Aslan’s Country, the destination of Reepicheep, the chivalrous mouse. When I read those tales as a child, these misty waters were my mental image of that fantastic place.

This print is loosely based on photos I took while visiting the Georgia coast. Of course, the coast of my home state is not Narnia. Yet the marshy lands of the barrier islands reminded me of the edge of the world in the Dawn Treader. There was a mystical quality to the place and it also reminded me of the places of ancient reverence that dot the marshy landscapes in the old world. Those transitional spaces between land and sea were long considered sacred and metaphorical if not actual boundaries to the spiritual world.

Does this artwork remind you of the Last Sea on the edge of the world in Narnia as well? Or perhaps it speaks to you of ancient sacred places? Maybe you simply love the soft colors and misty landscape? I hope you might pause for a moment to share your thoughts and let me know what you like most about this artwork?

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
