Creamsicle is one of the latest in Sherri Belassen’s collection of imaginative paintings. In this piece, Belassen depicts two colorful subjects preparing to brave the waves. Through the use of cool tones and under painting, one can feel the mist of the ocean. A striking detail in this piece is the texture. Belassen masterfully utilizes her palette knife, manipulating the paint on the canvas to allude to the water lapping at the surfers’ feet. A sense of anticipation and feeling of camaraderie form the narrative in this unique piece.
