Tiki Sunset
is a 24” x 48” oil painting by gallery owner and artist Ray Heard,
who derived his inspiration from a photo taken by a valued customer
named Lisa W. It is only one example of Heard’s ability to create unique,
customizable pieces where the customer provides the inspiration with
their own ideas, photos, or even simple sketches. Guests to the gallery
can also enjoy and choose from a plethora of already-produced works that
include abstracts, old master renditions, mosaic impressionism, realism,
and a few other creative art styles and genres with subject matters ranging
from sailing vessels to sea horses to Italian coastal scenes.
