Beachside Living,
an oil painting by
gallery owner and artist Ray Heard,
is the thousand words for what The
Heard Gallery is all about—beach art for
beach homes. His colorful pallet adds
happiness and cheer, with little square
paint strokes he refers to as “Mosaic
Impressionism.” Apparent in Ray’s
“beachside living” by Ray Heard
artwork is a long-established love for
painting the beach that began in Laguna
Beach, California and has continued in
Galveston for the last five years. This
magical style puts off a vibrant motion
and shimmering effect that captures the
feel of the wind blowing through trees
and the sun sparkling off of the water.
Choose a painting from the gallery walls
